Created by América-MG, from a very young age the boy showed a talent different from the others. So much so that at the age of fourteen, Cruzeiro went to look for the athlete in controversial negotiations.

Raposa has entered into an agreement to pay R$500,000 to businessman Andre Curie, through Link Evaluationoria Esportiva e Propaganda LTDA. However, this type of business is not authorized by FIFA.

This situation led to a major revolt on the part of the América-MG, who denounced Cruzeiro for alleged harassment and organized a boycott. Along with other teams in the country, Raposa has stopped participating in some popular competitions, such as the Nike U-15 Cup.

In May 2019, the clubs agreed to divide the economic rights after a long meeting between football directors.

At Raposa, Roque is always treated as a gem. From psychological assistance to a thoughtful process to appearing in the main team. The striker got his first professional chance last year. At the age of 16, he was used by coach Vanderlei Luxembourgo in the second division.

This year, he scored his first professional goal against Villa Nova-MG, for Campeonato Mineiro. At the club, he played 16 matches and scored six goals. The process carried out in his early years at the base began to give the expected result – and the world was already watching.

And Ronaldo, the heavenly manager, said the striker left Cruzeiro on a “dead night”. In a note, Raposa also cited the athlete’s abdication and criticized businessman Andre Curie and red-and-black leader Alexandre Matos. The Celestial Team was trying to renew until 2025.

During the month of March, management held several talks with agents Andre Curie and Francisco Rocha, heading towards the formalization of the new bond with salary adjustment. However, on the way to completing the deal, the answers obtained began to become scattered and elusive – the text says.

Hurricane Director Alexander Matos revealed the manager’s apology and criticized Cruzeiro. According to the executive, Cruzeiro’s board of directors sought Athletico to try to negotiate with Vitor Roque and even made a counter-offer of R$17 million.

– What I see is incompetence and amateurs and they want to justify it to the masses through third parties. nothing else. We told him: Ronaldo, we understand your need, but you can’t pay more than the fine. If I pay you 17 million, I must pay America and the boy proportionately, and this will give you more than 40 million Brazilian reais, this is not possible ”- Matos was assessed.

Minas Gerais club received 10.8 million Brazilian reais and is trying to correct the amount in court to 27 million Brazilian reais, arguing that Vitor Roque has two contractual increases, and the last sentence published in the Labor Court confirmed the initial values.

The attacker, in turn, will receive 4.8 million Brazilian riyals, in return for his entitlement to 20% of the value of the condition, according to what was expected in the contract. América-MG owned 35% of the rights and received R$8.4 million.

From Atletico to Europe?

Aggressive in the market, he bought Atletico Coelho (12.8 million) and Cannobio (15.2 million R$), which were the club’s biggest deals. So the opportunity arose for Vitor Rock.

The trend had no doubts when paying the 24 million R$ fine, as he imagines sporting and financial returns. The idea for the top Athletica to sell him to a major European lies in their most profitable sale – the biggest being from midfielder Bruno Guimarães to Lyon for R$20m (R$93m).

At CT do Caju, the 17-year-old will be involved in an operation until he is reunited at the club. However, his talent and personality accelerated the path and appeared in most matches.

Vitor Roque grabbed the limelight in Hurricane Racing in 2022. Without being able to score in the Copa del Rey – he’s already played for Cruzeiro – he collected good matches in the Brazilian League, and in the Libertadores, he scored in the round of 16. Out of competition and soon demanded space.

On a daily basis, he won with the help of Filipao, a multi-champion coach who surrendered to the talent of the striker. The public, for example, is already calling for him as a starter instead of Pablo, but the coach continues not to give in to pressure.

– He is still facing difficulties in some technical jobs, because he was a professional at the age of 15. He didn’t learn some things. Every now and then, in training, we stop playing: look, that head has to be oriented that way. Something you do in youngsters. He will become one of the greatest players waiting for us.. He is young, he still has to learn a few things, Filipao said at a press conference.

This week, Vitor Roque was named to CBF’s list of the world’s best potential. The last to win was midfielder Kaka in 2007. The main entity focus is on the 2026 and 2030 World Cups.

Thank God I was able to take advantage of the opportunities, the goals are coming. But it is the result of a lot of work, trying to evolve every day. I always try to listen to the advice of the most experienced players, from Professor Filippao, from the whole committee – the athlete commented on General Electric.
