Check out the pros and cons of Vitor Roque’s possible trip to Porto

Apparently, striker Vitor Roque is leaving Barcelona and one of the main candidates to sign him is Porto. The 19-year-old has received few opportunities since arriving at the Catalan club in January this year and is expected to be traded.

In total, he participated in just 13 games, totaling around 300 minutes, and scored two goals. The player is not one of coach Xavi’s favorites, who stated that he would decide on the athlete’s future at the end of the European season.

Porto is one of the main clubs interested in the Brazilian striker and hopes to count on him next season. Check now the pros and cons of Vitor Roque’s possible move to the Portuguese team:



One of the points in favor for Vitor Roque is the language. The center forward would go to a place where it would be easier to communicate with his teammates and the coaching staff.


Porto is characterized by being a club with several Brazilian players. Currently, the cast has seven: Samuel, Otávio, Pepe (naturalized Portuguese), Wendell, Pepê, Galeno and Evanilson. Throughout its history, the team has had 127 players from the country of football, according to data from the Transfer market.

More space

If he moves to Porto, the tendency is for Vitor Roque to be used more. At Barcelona, ​​he was unable to win the dispute with Robert Lewandowski and had few opportunities. While in the Portuguese team his main competitor would be Evanilson, who can even play alongside him.


The young Brazilian promise could follow in the footsteps of other great athletes who boosted their careers after playing for Porto. This is the case of Casemiro, who became one of the main midfielders in Europe after playing on loan for the Portuguese club, from 2014 to 2015, when he belonged to Real Madrid. Eder Militão, Alex Sandro and Danilo are other athletes who also stood out on the team and had successful careers in Europe.


Step back in career

Vitor Roque would leave one of the elite clubs in world football and go to a league that is not among the top five in Europe (Germany, Spain, France, England and Italy). This way, he would play in a less competitive place.

Porto in bad shape

The current season is not the best for Porto. The team occupies third place in the Portuguese Championship, with 69 points, and is out of the next Champions League. Furthermore, they could lose their place in the Europa League, in case of a stumble in the last round and a victory for Braga, third placed, with 68.

Change in command

Recently, André Villas-Boas became the team’s new president. The 46-year-old former coach took over the direction of the team after 42 years of command by Pinto da Costa, former manager. Because of this, some changes and uncertainties could hinder Vitor Roque. For example, the club’s current coach, Sérgio Conceição, is not guaranteed for next season.
