While it seems top clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain were looking to hijack the Vitor Roque, which might not be for not.
SPORT reports on Friday that Roque has shown his unwavering loyalty to signing with Barcelona and that he’s rejecting lucrative offers from other top clubs.
‼️Vitor Roque has rejected offers which wanted to triple his salary to remain faithful to Barcelona. Clubs like PSG, Manchester United and Chelsea offered him €10m/year gross in his first year while Barça offers €3.5m/year gross.#FCB 🇧🇷

PSG, Manchester United, and Chelsea have offered €10 million per year gross in his first year. However, Roque has chosen to remain faithful to Barcelona’s project, despite their offer of €3.5 million per year gross.
Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see how this reporting goes with Mundo Deportivo’s recent information. According to the Spanish media outlet, Club Athletico Paranaense, Roque’s current club, has given Barcelona a 24-hour ultimatum to submit the transfer documents.
The final agreement between Athletico and Barcelona was initially set at €30 million, with an additional €20 million in variables.
Roque’s decision to reject the substantial financial incentives from PSG, Manchester United, and Chelsea sends a powerful message. It shows that the young Brazilian wants a move to Camp Nou.
