    Malcom is better at everything related to the game of futbol. Malcom > Cheisa and it’s not even close.

    I highly doubt Verdi would be an improvement over Candreva. Verdi looks exactly like the type of players Candreva is i.e. those with some talents but most of times they make things happen by sheer brute force. Just like how Candreva had a lot of assists by sending in countless crosses, Verdi got many goals by taking the most shots (and misses) in the league. Remember how awesome Candreva was before joining Inter?

    50 m for a talent like him still sounds reasonable in this crazy market. Look at the money PL clubs are already splashing (Fred, Fabinho ...). In fact the player's will is our only chance to defeat PL clubs for any player of his caliber and price.

    Don't know if this one has been posted but Bordeaux coach speaks very highly of him. very mature and that he's a natural leader.
    The Neymar selfie was pretty funny.

    We missed out on too many good players that could've been bought with the money that was splashed on flops like Barbosa, KDog and Joao Mario.

    Now it's time for our luck to change.

    Since the interest for Malcom is getting serious, i have decided to share two interesting articles about Malcom. The first artcle was posted last summer and the second one few days ago.


    FEATURE | Malcom – the next Neymar or just a flash in the pan?

    ‘Lots of people had commented on social media, saying that Bordeaux was too small a club, and that I shouldn’t go, it was too much of a risk’ he was telling ESPN in June. Nevertheless, 18 months ago, Brazilian winger Malcom ignored the call of the big European clubs – Arsenal and Manchester City reportedly amongst them – and set off towards southwestern France for his first taste of football in Europe.

    Despite his compatriots’ lamenting that he had undersold himself by going to a midtable Ligue 1 club, he had not just picked any French team at random. Bordeaux, at that point six years on from their last league title, had been a renowned testing ground for South American players making their first steps out of their home countries, aided largely by a host of partnerships with clubs around the continent – for instance, Newell’s Old Boys, Lionel Messi’s boyhood club.

    This link has also established been with the ‘Proyecto Crecer’ academy in Córdoba, with which Bordeaux have had the first option on their players since an agreement was signed 13 years ago as part of the signing of Juan Pablo Francia. Emiliano Sala – now at Nantes – and Valentin Vada – who arguably had his breakout season this year, have been the most recent beneficiaries of this partnership.

    But beyond what is virtually a second academy for the club, the team’s recent history has seen a host of South Americans come and go thanks to a scouting operation led by former director of football Charles Comporro.

    The 2008/9 season saw Argentinian striker Fernando Cavenaghi’s goals be vital in the title win, while the Brazilian contingent has been a cornerstone of Bordeaux squads in past seasons, with Henrique, Jussie, Wendel, Mariano and Fernando all leaving fond memories behind on the banks of the Garonne. Bordeaux may not be Barcelona in terms of stature, but they it’s safe to say they know how to deal with a young Brazilian making his first step into the big leagues – and he would have had no shortage of past success stories to go by.

    Arriving six months after being a key part of Corinthians’ title win – for which he chipped in with five goals and four assists – Malcom was arriving in a club environment which starkly contrasted. Bordeaux, still recovering from Laurent Blanc’s departure and the financial restrictions that followed the title win, had been languishing in midtable for a few years following the dizzying heights of a Champions League run to the quarter final in which they saw off both Bayern and Juventus.

    A revolving door of managers would follow, none of which managing to truly restore Bordeaux back to the upper reaches of the table, even if Francis Gillot would win the Coupe de France in 2013. At this point, it was Willy Sagnol’s turn at the helm of the club. If there’s one positive thing that would come out of the former Espoirs national team manager, it was his insistence on bringing young players to the fore of the team. Malcom would benefit from this and appear 12 times in the marine blue shirt before the end of his first half-season, scoring his first goal in the penultimate game of the season against Lorient. Along with Adam Ounas, he was one of the bright sparks in an abjectly mediocre campaign and impressed with displays of skills as well as an attacking versatility.

    While Napoli-bound Ounas has had something of a season to forget and has failed to kick on, the same can’t be said of Malcom, who has had his own breakout season this year. Part of Bordeaux’s ‘KLM’ attacking trio – Kamano, Laborde and Malcom – the Brazilian has been key in manager Jocelyn Gourvennec’s rejuvenation of Bordeaux which has guided them back up to 6th place – which could have been 5th if not for a late resurgence from Marseille.

    Even if he did drift out of matches at times over the season and had periods out of form at the start of the season, his 7 goals, appearing in 37 games, have done little to quell the interest that already surrounded him at Corinthians. Arguably his best performance of the season came away to Lyon at the start of the season, in which his initial equalising goal and attacking drive set the tone for Bordeaux’s 3-1 win, and saw him on the receiving end of a horror tackle from opposition captain Maxime Gonalons.

    What sets Malcom apart from the average Brazilian wonderkid is his versatility – instead of hugging the touchline and relying on his quick feet to show up in the highlights, the position where Malcom has arguably shone the most has been in midfield, in a more central role. His dynamism and technical ability have often been the key for Bordeaux in unlocking Ligue 1’s tough defences, and even if Gourvennec seems to have found his ideal formation in the 4-3-3 in which the Brazilian plays on the right wing, he can always drift centrally if needs be.

    Virtually all Girondins fans would agree that Malcom is destined for big things, and this is more than likely to be away from Bordeaux. While his billing as the new Neymar may be hyperbolic – just as Diego Rolán’s as the new Suárez was – it’s clear that the club have one of the most promising players to come out of Brazil of his generation, and there will be no shortage of suitors should he decide to leave this summer. His agent, Fernando Garcia, has nonetheless claimed that his client wants to stay at Bordeaux for another season before leaving unless ‘a big offer comes in’, while Malcom himself has said that his family has fallen in love with city. Amongst all this uncertainty, Bordeaux will surely be looking to keep him for as long as possible to build on the successes of last season. But with Manchester United, Liverpool and Sevilla all reportedly interested in him, that’s easier said than done.


    FEATURE | How Malcom rescued his Bordeaux legacy & which European clubs are aligning themselves for him this summer

    Heading into the final day of the season, Bordeaux were two points adrift of 6th -placed Nice, who were holding the final European qualifying spot in Ligue 1. In the end, it was a 4-0 win over the already-relegated Metz, as well as a late winner from Memphis Depay in Lyon’s match against Nice, that sealed the Bordeaux’s Europa League berth. A miracle for a team who had been all but down and out in 15th at Christmas. By contributing a goal and an assist to the rout, Malcom could not have come up with a better parting gift. With three goals in as many games during the Girondins’ run in, the Brazilian winger, criticised for a downturn in attitude in the face of his imminent transfer, seems to have rescued his Bordeaux legacy and will be fondly remembered in the south-west of France.

    With the Ligue 1 season at its close, Malcom now faces a decision not unlike the one that first led him to Bordeaux. Having shined with Corinthians at the start of his career, he was not short of potential suitors at a young age, with the likes of Manchester United showing interest. While the prospect of a switch to a big club straight away – in the vein of Neymar – may have seemed enticing, he knew that many a Brazilian talent had faltered at this step.

    The São Paulo native instead chose the more sensible option, electing to make the intermediary move to Bordeaux, a club well-known for its success with South Americans – notably with his compatriots Henrique and Jussiê. Having developed beyond the level of the team and fully established himself in a European league, it is inevitable that this summer the move to a big club finally happens.

    Malcom’s style of play contrasts with that of the average Brazilian wonderkid touchline hugger. As Bordeaux’s creator-in-chief, he has notched 7 assists over the course of the season and is comfortable cutting into the middle to play passes forward. He is also adept in front of goal, with his trademark drilled long shots taking up most of his 12 goals this season. In this sense, a move to Bayern Munich, the club who have most prominently been linked with the youngster at this early stage of the window, would seem suitable given the crucial role that their wide men have played in the team. Acquiring Malcom would go a long way towards replacing the soon to be retired Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben.

    The winger himself had stated that he wanted to move on to “an elite club and play for the Brazilian national team” and has been learning English in preparation for his imminent transfer, possibly to the Premier League. Having not been selected for Tite’s squad for the World Cup, Malcom will be looking more than ever to put himself in the spotlight and be in contention for future Brazil call-ups.

    To the irritation of Bordeaux fans, he has openly talked about joining the Bavarians, and big clubs in general, multiple times during the closing months of the season. Nevertheless, the club has been resigned to losing him since last summer’s window, when the club refused an array of offers worth more than €40m from Germany (but not from Bayern) and convinced Malcom to stay.

    He had also been the subject of interest from Arsenal during the January transfer window. Sven Mislintat, the new head of recruitment at the Emirates, had previously targeted Malcom while at Dortmund last year as the Germans saw a €40m rejected by Bordeaux.

    While eventually the Gunners moved on from him in the winter, it is entirely possible that the Brazilian could be part of a shake-up inspired by the arrival of new manager Unai Emery, who will know about the Brazilian having faced him as PSG manager. Speaking at the start of last season, the Basque tactician had praised Malcom’s decision to stay in the south west of France, stating that he is a “player who can still grow even more” and that he was “a big player for Bordeaux as well as our league”.

    Up the road, Spurs have also been linked with a move for a player who would bring an added source of service from the wing to Harry Kane. Having also tried to bring Malcom to North London this winter, the club had not been able to meet the Bordeaux management’s asking price. With Champions’ League football secured, they would seemingly undoubtedly seem the more attractive prospect to the Brazilian in North London.

    Another potential destination that has emerged recently has been Liverpool, with the Reds potentially losing Mohamed Salah this summer. Nevertheless, Malcom would most likely not be able to replicate the Egyptian’s goalscoring prowess, while his tendency to act more as a playmaker would change the dynamics of Liverpool’s prolific front three. In addition, Malcom is not one to track back and work hard in pressing, an attribute invariably needed in Klopp’s systems.

    Overall, while Bayern Munich seem the best placed to capture Malcom this summer, the door is still open for a potential move to the Premier League. Although it seems that Arsenal’s board are the most admirative of him, Champions’ League football is what Malcom will be looking for; and Tottenham will be the more likely destination should the Brazilian turn to the Premier League.

    I once had Malcom, Kenedy, and Gabigol leading a legendary attack in FM with Bernardo Silva behind them. Like 100+ goals between the 3 of them.

    Problem is Eder is a known risk while the other is an unknown risk.
