Barcelona have confirmed that Vitor Roque will wear the No. 19 shirt at the club for the rest of the season.

The Catalans shared a picture of their new signing with his new jersey on ahead of the restart of their La Liga campaign this week.

The news comes as no real surprise as there had already been rumors that Vitor Roque would be taking over the 19 shirt for the rest of the campaign.

Barcelona are now trying to get their new signing registered in time for Thursday’s La Liga clash with Las Palmas so that he can debut.

The Catalans reportedly have been negotiating with La Liga and are now waiting for the green light so that Vitor Roque can play.

It’s thought that Barcelona will be able to register Vitor Roque for the rest of the campaign due to the salary space freed up by Gavi’s season-ending injury.
