Vitor Roque’s agent claims Man Utd & Tottenham launched ‘€100m hijack bids’ before Barcelona move

The agent of new Barcelona signing Vitor Roque has claimed that both Manchester United and Tottenham tried to hijack the striker’s move to Camp Nou with bids worth close to €100m.

Roque has signed up with Barcelona and will join the reigning Spanish champions next summer after they agreed to a deal which could be worth over €60m if all add-ons and bonuses are triggered.

After the 18-year-old was unveiled as the latest Blaugrana signing, his agent made an appearance on the Charla Podcast in which he made the huge claim that both United and Tottenham had lodged enormous bids for Roque.

“I can confirm that English clubs tried to hijack the Vitor Roque deal,” agent Andre Cury said. “Tottenham and Manchester United sent important bids, way better than Barça. They were worth more than €100m in total.

“However, his career plan is well defined and we opted for Barcelona. Now is not the time to look at the money.”
