‘Malcom in the middle’
One of the players who is gaining a lot of Premier League attention in January is Bordeaux’s Malcom.
Man United, Arsenal and Tottenham have all be linked to the Brazilian winger.
In 18 appearances this season, Malcom has scored seven Ligue 1 goals for Bordeaux. As many as the Brazilian claimed in 37 appearances last season.
Bordeaux snapped up Malcom for what now looks like a scandalously low fee of five million euros in early 2016.
He move to France from Brazilian club Corinthians.
Man United’s Malcom January move
Sky Sports have delved into the details of Man United’s interest in Malcom.
What’s confirmed is that the Red Devils are definitely interested in signing the Bordeaux star.
Of course, Man United made great efforts to sign Ivan Persic last summer and Jose Mourinho seems keen on signing a new left winger.
But will Jose Mourinho complete the deal this January?
That’s up in the air as Bordeaux are keen the midfielder until the end of the season at least.
However Bordeaux are in a bad state right now in France. That could open the door for Man United to slip in.
