Malcom agent: Barcelona choice made for Roma REVENGE

The agent of Malcom says they chose Barcelona over AS Roma due to revenge.

The former Bordeaux attacker was all set to sign for Roma a fortnight ago before agreeing to join Barca.

“The truth is that we decided not to go to Roma because they behaved badly with us," Leonardo Cornacini told Tuttomercatoweb.

“I was working on a deal for Fuzato, who is another of my clients, but Roma closed it with another agent, although it's worth mentioning that I have nothing against him. In short, it was revenge.

“I'm sorry to say it, but that's what it was. Roma behaved badly with us, 10 days before with the Fuzato deal, so we acted the same way towards them.

“Given the attitude shown towards us, I decided, together with Malcom, that the best destination wasn't the Giallorossi one.

“And then again, in the same deal for Malcom, Monchi had involved other intermediaries. Today, however, Malcom is happy to be a new signing for Barcelona."
