I posted two years ago that I watched a Bordeux league game and it was dross from both sides but there was one thing of quality and that was him.
I'm not sure Barcelona helps anyone improve I doubt they worked with him much at all, not like Poch would.
Yeah, I imagine Barca training they just rock up, have a bit of a 5 aside kick about and then thin out for cocktails in the sun...

They were pretty off the mark about Andre Gomes so I'm not sure we should put too much faith in this being true.

Barcelona negotiates with Tottenham for Malcom
  • The London club has taken advantage of the contacts by André Gomes to put on the table the name of the Brazilian
  • The Blaugrana do not contemplate letting him out for less than the 40 million they paid to the Girondins
The Brazilian winger Malcom is in the spotlight of several clubs in the Premier League, Serie A and Bundesliga, although it seems that Tottenham is the one that is showing more interest and has already made contact with the leaders of FC Barcelona to start negotiations.

The London club is now focused on preparing for the Champions League final, but is also doing homework for next season. Taking advantage of the contacts he is maintaining with Barcelona to talk about the signing of the Portuguese André Gomes, the leaders 'spurs' have also put on the table the name of Malcom, another of its objectives for the next year.

Malcom is on the agenda of several clubs. Borussia Dortmund are also preparing an offer and Arsenal have also shown interest.

The Barcelona does not contemplate the departure of the Brazilian for a transfer below the 40 million that paid last summer to the Girondins. The player, meanwhile, is also willing to listen to offers (especially from England), aware that at the Camp Nou he has not had all the minutes he was looking for.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's on our list. I doubt he's high on the list but everyone knows he's available this summer and Barca need to sell to fund their Ajax raid and Greizmann dreams. Would not be surprised if we've contacted Barca just to see their asking price.

Though the article mentions Dortmund who are already publically going to buy Thorgan and Brandt, and even with Pulisic leaving already have Sancho, Gotze, and Larsen so it's probably just a name dump to up his profile.

Lamela out, Malcom in would be a really nice trade IMO. I still think Malcom has big time potential.

I'm not writing him off after a rollercoaster year at Barca. Dembele went through the same thing and was excellent this season.

I just don't want a situation where Everton get a good deal and he ends up being like Payet was for West Ham for them.

I think it is definitely worth doing with Lamela's recurring injuries. I know they are nothing alike but would we bring in two left footed attacking midfielders in Sessegnon and Malcom? I guess it would depend on what we feel Sessegnon will be going forwards (LB/AM)

I don't see why not. We have 4 righties so I don't see what the issue with 2 lefties would be.

I guess that's true. But then it seems like we are after Lo Celso, are we going to sign 3 AM's (I know Lo Celso can play deeper too)? We would obviously need to move on Lamela but would we still be overloaded? Seems like a lot of turnover and we know CM and RB are positions we need to prioritize.

He has had one good season, in the French league. I’d want him, but talk of him as an upgrade on Lamela is a bit loopy.

Well at least he’ll be fit to play
Yeah, which has helped him garner a grand total of 0 international caps, as well as less appearances than Lamela last year.

It’s fine - it’s a new player, which in some eyes means “better”, but Lamela has been a good player for us regardless of his injury history.

I’m not saying Lamela isn’t a good player I’m saying you can’t rely on a player who’s injury record isn’t great
