What Xavi’s future means for Vitor Roque at Barcelona

An insight into the potential knock-on effect of Xavi vacating the bench at La Liga giants Barcelona on the future of youngster Vitor Roque has today been forthcoming.

The info comes courtesy of Diario AS, and points towards as much being set to play a potentially significant role in Roque’s immediate plans.

The Brazilian international has of course, to date, failed to convince boss Xavi of his readiness to contribute in his attacking ranks on a regular basis.

In the case of the Spanish tactician staying put beyond the summer, it is in turn concluded that Roque will depart, be it on a season-long loan, or a permanent transfer.

What, though, in the case of Xavi being dismissed?

The Barcelona brass are of course understood to be taking into serious consideration sending the club’s headmaster on his way, over the course of the next couple of weeks.

And AS suggest that, should as much play out, ‘things could well change’ for Roque, whose chances of staying put for 2024/25 would significantly increase.
