FC Barcelona's new Brazilian signing Malcom, who was on the verge of joining Serie A outfit Roma, has revealed why he decided to join the Blaugrana instead.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see pictures of Malcom at his new club Barca.

The 21-year-old forward sealed a €41 million (R635 million) move from Ligue 1 side Bordeaux to the Camp Nou on Tuesday, just one day after the French club had announced they had accepted a bid from Roma for his services.

Malcom, a Brazil youth international, has since described the move as a "dream come true" and hopes he will bring joy to the club’s supporters.

"This is a unique experience. I feel really happy. It is a dream come true to come to one of the biggest clubs in the world," he told Barca TV.

"I hope to make the fans happy. I am really looking forward to meeting my teammates, to talk to them and find out more about the way we play.

"I am really excited and in a hurry to get started. It is difficult to explain the feeling. It is a dream come true since I was young."

Great signing by barca it's a bargain for sure @41 m , considering his age n talent..I would have wolcomed the signing of William but if Chelsea wanted 75 m for him at his age, they were day dreaming, barca did well by not bow to their demands..Malcom has a magnificent left foot. Future looks bright with him n Dembele hopefully barca can give Dembele more game time this szn..
