The future Blaugrana player will compete with Endrick in the under-20 category
Real Madrid players Vinicius and Rodrigo are nominated in the queen category
Vitor Roque continues to attract the attention of the football world. The 18-year-old Brazilian has been nominated for best Brazilian footballer in the under-20 category of the Samba Gold awards. The future Barça player will compete in the same category with Endrick. The future Madrid player, who will join Real Madrid in June 2024, already won the trophy in the last edition.
Along with the two future stars of LaLiga, there are 8 more footballers nominated: Marcos Leonardo (Santos), Robert Renan (Zenit), Andrey Santos (Nottingham Forest), Beraldo (São Paulo), Savio (PSV), Victor Hugo (Flamengo) , Matheus França (Crystal Palace) and Gabriel Moscardo (Corinthians). This last player has been rumored for several days as a possible signing for Barça, since Deco is following him very closely.
Although ‘Tigrinho’ has all the numbers to win this trophy. No under-20 player has managed to match his numbers this season.. He has scored 20 goals and given 8 assists. Unfortunately, the Brazilian will not be able to increase these statistics due to the ankle injury he suffered on September 22 when his current team, Ath. Paranaense was playing against Internacional.
In principle, the Brazilian will already be recovered by the month of January, when his signing for Barça is expected to become a reality, if FairPlay allows it.
In the queen category, the nominations of Madrid players Vinicius and Rodrygo stand out, who will compete with Casemiro (Manchester United), Ederson (Manchester City), Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton (Newcastle), Alisson (Liverpool), Marquinhos (PSG), Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal) and Neymar (Al Hilal). The former Barça footballer is the highest recipient in the history of this award with 5 trophies, the last one being awarded last year.
