Roma win race to sign Brazilian winger Malcom from Bordeaux

Roma could take legal action against Bordeaux and Malcom after the forward pulled out of a deal to move to the Italian club in order to sign for Barcelona. The Spanish giants have won this battle with Roma and the Spanish city is the player's preferred destination as this 11th-hour bid, of around €40m, has paid off.

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

Roma fans gathered at the airport on Monday night, as they expected to welcome the 21-year-old, but his flight was cancelled by the Ligue 1 club at the last moment. The Brazilian joined the club on July 24 but the story started two weeks earlier at the Hotel Arts in Barcelona where the club met the player's representatives.

Malcom was due to fly to the Italian capital on Tuesday to finalise the deal, but did not travel, given the interest shown by Barcelona. "Pallotti made the decision to make the best offer possible but when the negotiation became an auction we chose to withdraw".

"I informed the Bordeaux president and his agents that Roma were ready to beat Barcelona's offer".

"I told them enough", Monchi said.

The Brazilian, who can play as a winger or attacking midfielder, will undergo a medical on Wednesday before being unveiled as Barcelona's third signing of the summer.
