Man Utd offer £30million to sign £50.7million versatile player – Decision made


Manchester United have been interested in Vitor Roque for some time and the latest reports going on in the media are intriguing.

Last month, reports in the Catalan media indicated that the Red Devils have held talks with the agent to inquire about hiring the 19-year-old forward.

More recently, another Catalan outlet have revealed that the Old Trafford side have moved in with an offer to lure the Brazilian.

According to Spanish source, Nacional, Man Utd submitted an offer worth (£30million) 35 million euros for Vitor Roque.

However, Barcelona turned down the proposal and are asking for a fee of £50.7million (60 million euros), the amount they paid to sign him in 2023.

The teenage sensation is a versatile talent, who is naturally a center forward, but can play in the wide attacking positions as well.

Last season, he made 8 appearances as a striker, 6 as a left winger and 1 as a right winger, under the management of Xavi Hernandez.

Roque mainly had to warm the bench and could only make two start in the Spanish La Liga. He also managed to find the net on two occasions.

Man Utd do need to reinforce their strike-force but the question is, should they sign yet another youngster, in the form of Vitor Roque, after luring Hojlund last summer?

In recent years, the 20-time English champions have let go experienced forwards like Ronaldo, Cavani, Weghorst and now, Martial is leaving upon the expiry of his contract this month.

Therefore, in all fairness, Ten Hag needs an experienced striker to improve the department and lately, reports have linked Man Utd with Ivan Toney.

In your opinion, who should United lure to strengthen the CF position at Old Trafford?
