Bordeaux’s coveted winger Malcom has told Sky “it would be a dream to play for Bayern Munich.”
Malcom, 21, has scored eight goals and added six assists in 27 Ligue 1 appearances this season. He had been previously linked with Arsenal and Tottenham, but Sport Bild reported last month that the Brazilian winger had provisionally agreed a five-year deal with the Bundesliga champions.
Responding to the speculation after his agent visited the Bavarian capital, Malcom said: “Bayern Munich is one of the biggest clubs in the world and it would be a dream to play there one day.
“Everybody knows Bayern Munich, I’m very happy that they are considering me. I’ll continue to keep working hard on my game so that, one day, perhaps a move to Munich turns into reality.”
Last Friday, Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes denied the German champions were eyeing a move for the former Corinthians player.
“I have never seen him play. Such players are often touted around like this, but I don’t think he’s a topic [of interest]. Our scouts will probably see it similarly,” Heynckes said.
