Brazilian defender Malcolm, who currently plays for the French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux, has reportedly shown interest to join Manchester United. The full-back has said that he is open to a move to the Premier League and will think about the offer if it comes from The Red Devils.
The Brazilian defender, who plays at the right back position for his current club, moved to the French League from his former club, the Brazilian side Corinthians. Speculations are rife that Malcolm was linked with Manchester during his days with the Brazilian club. The footballer himself has reportedly confirmed that the speculations are true.
Manchester United have been facing a world of problems in their defensive ranks, with a number of their players being sidelined with injuries. However, their regular right-back Antonio Valencia has been featuring regularly in their outings, while the other versatile right back, Matteo Darmian, is playing in the left-back position with their regular left-back Luke Shaw out with an injury.
Shaw has also come under criticism from the Red Devils coach Jose Mourinho, who wants more commitment from the English international, which he has allegedly failed to show since his return from injury.
Mourinho has also hailed Valencia as the best right back in the world, praising his style of playing and his level of commitment. However, the Red Devils have found it really hard to find a back-up option for the Ecuadorian full back and Malcolm might be the answer to their woes.
Valencia is already in his 30’s and is still going strong. Reportedly, Manchester United are eyeing the Brazilian defender as a back-up for the Ecuadorian ace. Other than Malcolm, Manchester United also have St Etienne’s Kevin Malcuit, Paris Saint Germain right back Serge Aurier and Kieren Tierney, the 19-year old full-back from Scottish champions Celtic, all on their radar for the next season.
Malcolm has a contract with his current club Bordeaux which runs till 2020. The Brazilian is known for his darting runs down the right hand side, supplying balls into the attacking third for his teammates to score goals on a regular basis.
He is also equipped with an ability to tackle the opponent strikers pretty cleanly in order to gain the possession and once it is done, he can keep the possession of the ball with himself for a significant period of time. He is dangerous in aerial duels whereas his shots from distance are dangerous enough for the opposition team.
