Malcom to Tottenham emerged again this week despite the winger being bought by Barcelona last summer.
Rarely playing under Ernesto Valverde, the young Brazilian could have easily been tempted by a loan or a move elsewhere to get his career back on track, and if Sport on Thursday were to be believed, Spurs were ready to offer him a new landing spot.
The Catalan outlet even went as far as saying Malcom would ‘probably’ join Mauricio Pochettino at Wembley, yet Mundo Deportivo see it very differently.
According to sources close to the player, the former Bordeaux star has no intention of leaving Barcelona midway through the season.
Furthermore, they deny the alleged chat Valverde had with Malcom, who supposedly told his player it was best for him to find a new club as he wouldn’t get any chances at the Nou Camp.
Believe who you want at this point, but it always seemed like a long shot for the Brazilian to leave so soon after his arrival, especially when he has the likes of Ousmane Dembélé and Lionel Messi to compete with.
