Barcelona have officially beaten Roma to the signing of attacker Malcom from Bordeaux.

A statement on Barca’s official website confirms the club have agreed a deal worth €41m plus €1m for Malcom.

Furthermore, he will arrive in Catalonia on Tuesday evening, undergo his medical the following morning and then put pen to paper on a five-year contract.

It represents a stunning turnaround, given Roma had reached an agreement to sign the 21-year-old and were expecting him in the Italian capital on Monday.

However, it soon sufficed that Bordeaux had denied him permission to board a flight to Rome as Barca came in with an 11th-hour bid, which surpassed the Giallorossi’s €40m.

Malcom, who primarily plays as a left-footed right winger, scored 20 goals in 84 appearances for Les Girondins and has represented Brazil at Under-20 and U21 levels.
