Deal Agreed: Man United set to land Barcelona star in January – Confirmed

Premier League giants Manchester United look to have been handed a huge boost in the market as Barcelona star Malcom looks to have been handed the green light to depart Nou Camp by superstar team-mate Lionel Messi.

The Brazilian yougster has barely made a key impact since joining the La Liga giants in the summer transfer window, despite looking one of Europe’s most exciting youngsters at former club Bordeaux.

The Red Devils were connected heavily with the South American during his spell at the French Ligue 1, though they pulled out of a transfer deal in January when they instead turn their focus on signing Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez from North London club Arsenal.

The former Barcelona star, however, has been a major flop at the club and, a year after, the side remain keen on the Brazilian as they make plans to sign new attacking players.

As per Don Balon, the 21-year-old is now very much available for only £63million, which could be a bargain for United.

However, the Red Devils will have to rival with an unnamed football club from China, with Don Balon suggesting an offer of that figure has already been submitted for the talented forward.

Manchester United FC urgently need to hijack the deal for the starlet, with his Spanish side clearly willing to offload and Argentine superstar Lionel Andres Messi a prominent figure in giving his side the much-needed green light to do so after the Brazilian’s lack of key impact at the Catalan club.
