Catalan radio RAC 1 claims Malcom’s agent is already in Barcelona to finalise the deal
Yesterday afternoon Bordeaux had agreed a fee with Roma and Malcom was expected to fly out to Rome ahead of a medical this morning. Barça’s late move has seen that deal put on the backburner and now they are at the front of the queue.
Roma are understandably furious at the last minute change of plan and some of their fans were even at the airport waiting for the player to arrive in Italy. It appears the ball is now in Barça’s court and it’ll be up to them to convince both Bordeaux and the player that the Camp Nou is the best destination for the Brazlian winger.
