- The latest twist in Malcom transfer news sees Barcelona become the new favorites to sign the winger from Bordeaux
- AS Roma had an agreement with Malcom and Bordeaux but Barcelona have hijacked AS Roma’s bid in the very last moment
In a huge twist of events last night, latest Barcelona transfer news saw the Catalan side become the new favorites in Malcom transfer chase despite AS Roma having won the race to sign the Brazilian winger, according to reports in Italy. The latest twist in Malcom transfer chase sees Barcelona trying to hijack AS Roma’s bid for the player and according to Football Italia, Malcom’s present club Bordeaux are prepared to accept Barcelona’s improved bid. AS Roma thought they had signed the player in a reported deal worth 35million and the player was supposed to travel to Rome to complete his medical on Tuesday. So much so, AS Roma fans had filled up the airport in anticipation of seeing the player arrive to complete his AS Roma transfer.
Barcelona hijack AS Roma’s bid for Malcom
Despite agreeing on Malcom transfer with Bordeaux, AS Roma have lost the Malcom transfer battle as Barcelona see Malcom as their backup option for Ousmane Dembele who is seen as the weakest link for Barcelona’s front three. Having lost the battle for Antoine Griezmann transfer this summer, Barcelona are keen to add another attacker before the start of next season and although they have entered Malcom transfer chase pretty late given the history and stature of the club, we may see Barcelona get the better of AS Roma and other potential suitors and sign Malcom this summer.
The Malcom transfer update coming from Italy has now steered the player towards Barcelona and according to reports from the noted journalist Di Marzio, Malcom is ready to join Barcelona and fulfill his ambition of winning the Champions League. Latest Barcelona transfer news claims that an official bid for Malcom is expected to be submitted today as Bordeaux will continue to deny Malcom the permission to join AS Roma. Following Barcelona’s official bid for Malcom, the Brazilian winger is expected to complete his transfer in next 48 hours.
