'Barca Must Give Us Messi!'

With FC Barcelona having hijacked Malcom's transfer to Roma earlier this week, the Italian club's president has since claimed he will only forgive the Spanish giants if they give them superstar Lionel Messi.

Revealed: How Barca Hijacked Malcom Deal

French club Bordeaux announced earlier this week that they had reached an agreement with Roma over the sale of the Brazilian, only for the player to sign for Barca less than 48 hours later.

Roma president James Pallotta has revealed that the Blaugrana did apologise for their late approach for the player, but added that they will only forgive the Catalans if Messi was sold to them.

"Barcelona intervened in an unethical way," the club's president told SiriusXM.

"In the morning, Monchi was in a conference call with his agent and an agreement was made.

"We've received legal advice, and it seems Bordeaux will be called to testify. Yesterday, Barcelona apologised to us, but I didn't accept their apologies.

"The only way to accept them is if they decide to give us Messi."

Despite his frustration, Pallotta also insisted that the two clubs will still do business in the future if the opportunity arises.
