“FC Barcelona have secured the services of Victor Hugo Santana Carvalho, known as Vitinho, for Barça B on loan from Palmeiras until 30 June 2018 with the option to make the move permanent,” the club said on their official website.
“Vitinho, who was born in Sao Paulo on 4 March 1998, has signed his contract this evening in the presence of the Director responsible for the Professional Academy Football, Silvio Elias, and the head of sports management in the football area, Josep Segura.
“The Brazilian player will join the Ernesto Valverde’s team’s preseason training tomorrow.”
After signing his contract, the player said he was delighted to be able to represent the same club that other top Brazilians have.
“I am very happy. I have always been a big Barça fan as it is the best club in the world,” Vitinho said.
“I will now be able to play at the Club where Rivaldo, Ronaldinho played and my idol Neymar plays.”
The 19-year-old will play for Barca B, though he will train with the senior side.
