“I have messages with Malcolm agents and the president of the Girondins saying that the agreement was closed. You have to see if they can be valued. Whoever wants to come to Rome well, whoever does not, will not come. Now we will find another player equal or stronger, “began Monchi, who added that everything was closed until after an hour when began to sound an offer from Barcelona: “Thirty minutes after closing the operation, the president of the Girondins called me saying that they wanted to make a tweet announcing the agreement, we did the same thing, everything seemed closed, but an hour later we started to hear Barça voices … “he explained.
From there, they started the calls to Stéphane Martin, president of the Girondins, who speaks to him of one last offer of the Barcelona better to the one offered by them and that, therefore, blocked the exit of the player: “My surprise was when he calls me one of the player's representatives. He calls me and tells me that the Girondins has blocked the player's trip. I call the president and he tells me that Barça has raised the offer at the last minute, “he said.
Roma, all in the words of Monchi, decides to raise the offer for Malcom and the Girondis warns them that if all is well the player would travel this Tuesday: “With the president of the club we decided resubmit the offer to the Girondins. The president of the Girondins asks me for documents … and they said that if everything was ok that tomorrow the soccer player was traveling, “he continued.
That's when the French team asked the Roma again to raise the offer and Monchi decided to abandon the negotiation by Malcom: “At that moment I say enough”, concluded the Romanian director.
Malcom has signed throughout the afternoon of Tuesday as the new player of Barcelona. The Brazilian arrives after paying the Barça team 41 million euros and close the deal with the forward for the next five seasons.
