He was at the center of a very protracted transfer saga involving Barcelona, Bordeaux and Inter Milan some weeks back and decided to settle for Barcelona. In the first set of friendly games he featured in for the Catalonian side, he performed well.
However, the player in question, Malcom has so far found it difficult to break into the first team at the Camp Nou. The player has managed just two substitute appearances in La Liga.
This has naturally given room to rumours about the player wanting to leave Barca to go elsewhere so as to get playing time. Malcom has however come out to deny talks about him leaving in the winter.
He has taken to his Instagram account deny such talks as he wrote;
“About news that came out here in Spain, I want to clarify this: I came to Barcelona with many objectives, and those who know me know that I am a very determined person. “‘I’m very happy with my development with every passing day.
“My objective is to make my dreams come true “My family is also adapting very well to the city. “Anyway, I’ll continue fighting for everything I desire in my career.”
Malcom had been linked with moves to Arsenal and Inter Milan before his last minute decision to move to Barcelona, while German pair Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund were also understood to be keen on the winger.
