Roma Consider Legal Action Over Barcelona’s Malcom Hijack

FC barcelona,AS ROMa,FC Girondins de Bordeaux

The 21-year-old was set to join the Italians this week but media reports in Spain and Italy said Spanish champions Barca's 11th hour offer had changed Malcom's mind and he has become their third signing of the transfer window.

# Barcelona then made an offer for Malcom outbidding Roma.

Roma are considering taking legal action over Barcelona's £37million transfer for Malcom.

"We are looking at our options and seeing if we have a legal case".

Roma sporting director Monchi said "nothing was signed" with Malcom, who had also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal, Everton and Tottenham said to be interested.

Monchi does not seem a happy man and given the fact that he mentioned the messages he received from Malcom's agent and Bordeaux's president, it seems like he is willing to take legal recourse.

Malcom will soon join his new teammates in the USA and start working under the orders of Ernesto Valverde.

He said: "It is true that, a few days ago, I was aware that a lot of squads were keen on Malcom - Barcelona among them".

"The agents and the Bordeaux president told me that if all was agreed, today [Tuesday] we would be able to exchange the documents and the player would again be authorised to travel to Rome in the evening", Monchi continued.

This can be seen by how Bordeaux accepted a €41 million deal for the youngster after having already agreed a deal with Roma for just one million less. I told them enough, because we did not want to enter an auction: we could not continue like that, and yesterday we had only raised our offer because of the willingness and desire of our president. Thirty minutes after the agreement with Bordeaux, my President called me telling me that it was better for them to make an official statement about the agreement.

He told the Roma website: "Early this morning I spoke with Malcom's agent, Fernando Garcia, who had a meeting with Bordeaux planned at 12pm to confirm everything was in place for the player to travel to Rome in the evening". If someone wants to come to Roma that is great, but ultimately if they do not want to come to Rome then we do not want them.

Barca had welcomed their new star on Tuesday by tweeting pictures of the Brazilian kissing the club badge and using the hashtag #EnjoyMalcom.

Following his medical Malcom is expected to join up with his new team-mates on their pre-season tour in the United States.

Malcom scored 23 goals and contributed 16 assists in 96 games for Bordeaux in his two-and-a-half seasons at the club.
