Barcelona Sign Malcom From Bordeaux After Roma Drama

A sensational end to the transfer saga

Barcelona have agreed a £36.5million fee - €41m plus €10m in add-ons - with Bordeaux for winger Malcom and he is expected to fly to Spain on Tuesday evening ahead of a medical on Wednesday.

Roma had reached an agreement with Bordeaux to sign the 21-year-old, subject to the player completing a medical and agreeing personal terms with the Italian club.

Malcom had been linked with Everton and Inter Milan but Roma announced on Monday they had agreed a deal with Bordeaux worth €40m for the Brazilian.

English clubs may have been put off from bidding for Malcom as he needed a United Kingdom work permit to play in the Premier League.

"The player will sign with the Club for the next five seasons, until the end of the 2022/23 season".

Britain's Geraint Thomas (R), and Sky teammate Chris Froome are in pole position to win the 105th edition of the Tour de France . He tried a getaway while going up the Pic de Nore climb at 40 kilometers from the finish but was reeled in on the way down.

Malcom's potential move to Roma has been thrown into doubt after Barcelona expressed an interest in signing the Brazilian. He stands out due to his electrifying pace and his technique with the ball at his feet.

Roma have moved to quickly put the disappointment of missing out on Malcom behind them, announcing the arrival of Sweden worldwide goalkeeper Robin Olsen for an initial €8.5m fee.

Malcom, yet to be capped at senior level by Brazil, scored 20 goals and set up another 13 in 84 Ligue 1 games following his 2016 move from Corinthians.

The Spanish champions have also brought in central midfielder Arthur from Grêmio for a reported £35.5m, and French defender Clément Lenglet from Sevilla for £31m.
