Malcom to join Barcelona on US tour after completing medical

After signing from Bordeaux for €41 million, the Brazilian has passed his medical and will fly out to meet the squad in the United States

Malcom is set to join up with his new Barcelona team-mates on their United States tour after successfully passing his medical on Wednesday.

The Brazilian winger put pen to paper on a five-year contract on Tuesday after Barca agreed a €41 million (£36.5m/$48m) deal with Bordeaux, hijacking Roma's proposed switch for the 21-year-old.

Bordeaux announced earlier this week that a €40m fee had been agreed with Roma, only for Malcom to reportedly reject that move in favour of joining the Spanish champions.

Malcom could feature when Barca meet Tottenham in the International Champions Cup in California on Saturday, before potentially facing the club he snubbed, Roma, on Tuesday.

Barca conclude their ICC fixtures against AC Milan on August 4.

Malcom adds to the signings of Arthur and Clement Lenglet as Barca prepare to defend their Liga crown in the forthcoming 2018-19 campaign.
