As per one of the latest reports by Sky Sports, Manchester United are keen to make a move for Malcom de Oliveira, who currently plies his trade for Ligue 1 outfit, Bordeaux. Manchester United are currently placed at the 2nd spot in the league table with 41 points to their name after 18 games, behind their local rivals, Manchester City. The gap between two Manchester sides is that of 11 points and Jose Mourinho would be keen to bring reinforcements to put sterner challenge for the title.

Malcom, who emerged through the youth ranks of Corinthians, made a name for himself after he was promoted to the senior side of the Brazilian outfit. His tremendous rise tempted Bordeaux to make a move for him in January transfer window of 2016 and he has been quite superb for them. His run of form this season is quite appealing, as the attacking midfielder has banged 7 goals and has registered 4 assists in 17 appearances so far in Ligue 1.

The 20-year-old is known for his versatility of operating effectively from either wing as well as from the central attacking midfield position and he is more than capable of scoring stupendous goals and compelling assists. He loves to drift across the attack to find pockets of space and then terrorizes the defense of the opposition with his raw pace and mesmerizing skills. Besides, he crosses the ball well and more often than not, he is found to be industrious in the final third.

Mourinho has two quality players in the shapes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, both preferring to operate from the left-wing. With the addition of someone as talented as Malcom, the Portuguese gaffer would be able to provide more balance to his side as Malcom loves to operate from the right. The Sao Paulo attacker stretches the opposition’s defense with relative ease and plays to his strengths and no wonder why the Red Devils have put him on their radar.

It has been reported by The Sun that Manchester United club authority has handed £80million to Mourinho to make the necessary additions in the upcoming January transfer window to strengthen his side further and it is perceived that they might have to dish out around £30million to secure Malcom’s services. Although the youngster lacks the experience of Premier League football, he has showcased that he has the ingredients to excel and could very well adapt to the animosity of English football.
