In an interview with BeIn Sport (h/t RMC Sport), Bordeaux winger Malcom has claimed that a switch to Paris Saint-Germain would be a ‘dream move’.
The recent revelation by Malcom would come as a big blow to Tottenham Hotspur, who have been heavily linked with a £40m move for the Brazilian in the summer.
Football.London reports that Bayern Munich also remain interested in Bordeaux’s Malcom apart from Tottenham and Arsenal.
However, Malcom was asked about any apparent contact between French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain and his club Bordeaux over a possible switch to Parc Des Princes this summer, to which he said,
“It’s the dream, they are big clubs, who will always play at the top level, play the Champions League, which will be champions in their league,” Malcom said.
“I know there were conversations with PSG, PSG is a big club.”
Malcom confirms that he is likely to leave Bordeaux in the next transfer window and states that discussions have already been established between PSG and Bordeaux.
“I want to play for an elite club in Europe, win the Champions League and play for the Selecao [Brazil’s national team],” he was quoted by Football.London.
“When I play for a big club, my chances improve.
“I want to thank Bordeaux for everything. First I want to finish the season with the best possible result and then I am going to sit down with my agent and family. Together we will make a decision.”
The Brazilian sensation is renowned for his exceptional pace and dribbling skills but it is unclear where Malcom will choose to play next season. Despite Bordeaux’s poor campaign, Malcom has excelled, scoring 9 goals and providing 6 assists in 28 matches.
As far as Spurs are concerned, the 21-year-old Brazilian would be a fine addition to our crop of emerging young talents.
Malcom has everything in his locker to become a top player and under the watchful eyes of Mauricio Pochettino, the Brazilian can go onto achieve bigger things in his career.
