Vitor Roque is set to join Barcelona imminently, and has already been spotted packing his bags for his new club, which means we should be able to see the new signing shortly.

Diario AS have detailed Barca’s plans for the new signing including his presentation date, when he’ll train with his new team-mates for the first time and then make his debut.

The Brazilian is due to land in Barcelona on Wednesday, December 27. He will then train with the team when they return to action after Christmas on Friday the 29th.

Fans will then get a chance to see Vitor Roque for the first time when the club hold their traditional open door training session a day later at the Estadi Johan Cruyff.

Vitor Roque will then be officially presented at an event on January 3rd and could then potentially make his debut against Las Palmas on January 4.

The report claims the club are “convinced” he can go straight into the team and are also keen for him to adapt to life at Barca as soon as possible.

Xavi has already warned it’s not fair to expect Vitor Roque to turn around their season, but there’s no doubt his arrival comes at a good time with the Barca attack struggling.
