Vitor Roque has admitted he’s chatted with Raphinha about life at Barcelona before moving to the Catalan giants.

The teenager has arrived at his new club to complete his move and will now link up with his new team-mates.

Here’s what he’s told the club’s media about what he’s been told to expect at Barcelona from Raphinha.

“Only wonderful things. That Barça is a fantastic club, perfect club, where it is easy to learn and work. But also that here the only things that matter are winning, winning and winning,” he said.

“I am coming here very much looking forward to doing things, learning and enjoying myself. I’ve been preparing for this with my personal coach. Every day we’ve been speaking to make sure I arrive in Barcelona in perfect condition.

“I can’t wait to play with Lewandowski. And with Raphinha too, of course. That’ll be a dream come true.”

Vitor Roque was also asked about what he can offer the team and told fans what they can expect from their new signing.

“A fighter who never gives up any ball as lost. And I also know that my job is to score as many goals as possible,” he said.

The arrival of Vitor Roque gives Xavi another option in attack for the second half of the season. Xavi has tried to play down expectations around Vitor Roque but Barca fans will be hoping he can make an instant impact.
