New €41m Signing: Why I Signed For Barca

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.

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."
