Roma president Pallotta admits Barcelona anger: We've taken legal advice

AS Roma president James Pallotta says he won't accept Barcelona's apology for signing Malcom - unless they give them Leo Messi in compensation!

Pallotta admits there remains frustration missing out on the former Bordeaux star.

"Barcelona apologised to us, but I didn't accept their apologies," he reportedly said in a radio interview.

"The only way to accept them is if they decide to give us Messi.

"Barcelona intervened in an unethical way.

"Monchi was in a conference call with [Malcom's] agent and an agreement was made.

"We've now received legal advice and it seems Bordeaux will be called to testify."
