Juventus Contemplating Bold Move for Barcelona Whizz-Kid

Juventus are reportedly considering an audacious move for Barcelona youngster Vitor Roque to reinforce their frontline. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Serie A powerhouse would lodge an offer for the Brazilian talent if they find the terms acceptable.

It promises to be a hot summer in Turin. In addition to the managerial change, Juventus will alter the face of their attacking department. Moise Kean seems close to departing the Allianz Stadium for the second time, while Arkadiusz Milik’s future hangs in the balance.

On top of that, Juventus and Napoli are allegedly negotiating a swap deal involving Federico Chiesa and Giovanni Di Lorenzo. Chiesa’s exit would open a considerable gap in attack, and Roque could fill it. However, it will depend on Barcelona’s demands.

Roque has a €500 million release clause and a contract valid until 2031. It means Juventus would have to go above and beyond to convince the Spaniards to let him go on favorable terms. But the player’s will could be decisive.

Despite landing at Camp Nou with high expectations, Roque only made two La Liga starts last season. His agent has already hinted at a potential exit, with Juventus ready to pounce. He will be willing to change the air unless he gets guarantees from Barcelona for more playing time.

The 19-year-old would likely have better chances of regular first-team football at Juventus. A loan deal could also be on the cards.
