Financial Fair Play to determine the future of Barcelona teenager Vitor Roque

The future of Barcelona teenager Vitor Roque remains up in the air, after a disappointing first few months in Spain. The club will look to resolve this issue in the coming weeks after the La Liga campaign has concluded.

Despite recent reports, no final decision over the future of the player has been made by the club. According to Marca, Roque’s future will be determined by Financial Fair Play regulations.

Currently, the forward isn’t registered for next season and although he has a contract with Barca, ​​the Sports Directorate was only able to register him in January for the remaining six months of competition due to regulations that allowed it because of the severity of Gavi’s injury.

The Spanish giants don’t have any space at the moment to register the player and would have to sell to make space for the forward. Roque has found it difficult at the Catalan club and hasn’t played on a regular basis.

The 19-year-old is still yet to make his Champions League debut and has been omitted from the matchday squad on occasions this season. Therefore, the club are deciding whether it is worth selling starters to fit Roque into their squad next season, when the player has been underwhelming so far.

This situation has alerted clubs such as Manchester United, who are long-term admirers of the player. United could be tempted to trade Mason Greenwood for Roque, as both players look for fresh starts at a new club.

Despite this, Barca are yet to reach a decision and it is likely that they would only entertain permanent offers, which would see them get a return on their January investment.
