La Liga giants Barcelona are reported to have set prices for their wing striker, Malcom, which is likely to be released in the transfer market next summer.
Barcelona spent 41 million euros to recruit Malcolm from Bordeaux last summer. Even though the player is just one step away from joining AS Roma.
However, Malcom is now not the main choice in Barcelona. The Brazilian is still struggling to win the heart of coach Ernesto Valverde.
The situation at Barca made Malcom claimed to want to go from Camp Nou this summer to look for opportunities to play more with other clubs.
But as reported by Mundo Deportivo, Barca will only be willing to release Malcom if there are clubs that want to pour out funds worth 50 million euros for the 21-year-old player.
This value is indeed quite high for the size of players who rarely appear. But Barca reportedly confirmed that the price could not be negotiable.
Recently there was news that the Serie A giants Inter Milan were interested in saving Malcom’s career. But the Malcom agent confirmed that there had been no contact from the Nerazzurri camp.
“We respect Inter and their sporting director. However, I repeat now that there is no relationship. Malcom is indeed an attractive figure for many big European clubs, but he still has a long contract with the Blaugrana, until June 2023, “said Malcom agent Leonardo Cornacini.
“He adapted well and we believe that next year he will do much better than this.” he stressed.
