Roma chief Monchi rules out Malcom deal: He played us

AS Roma chief Monchi has ruled out trying again for Barcelona attacker Malcom.

Former Bordeaux winger Malcom infamously turned his back on Roma to join Barcelona last summer.

Monchi said, “Malcom? No. When you're the sporting director of a club, you must understand that you also represent the hearts and feelings of the fans.

“He played Roma and I care about the club's image."

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde has stated this week he is counting on Malcom this season.
