Malcom poses with the FC Barcelona

A day after AS Roma confirmed that they have reached an agreement to rope in Brazillian striker Malcom for a fee of 38 million pounds, Barcelona made a last-minute bid and brought the Bordeaux player to Camp Nou directly.

The 21-year-old, who was expected to arrive in Rome for the completion of the deal, reportedly, did not travel, following Barcelona's late bid. It was reported that the striker was a flight away from signing for the Romans, however, a last minute call saw Malcom on the flight to Barcelona. 

Roma, on Tuesday, announced that the Brazil striker and the club had a mutual agreement, however, the Catalan giants hijacked their deal with a last minute deal. 

The attacking midfielder was at the radar of many football clubs including Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain, but they were defeated by Roma's lucrative deal.
