Brazilian forward Malcolm close to joining Ligue 1 club Bordeaux
Teenage Brazilian forward Malcolm is set to join French football club Bordeaux.
The 18-year-old has been omitted from Corinthians' squad for the Sao Paulo state championship amid ongoing negotiations with the Ligue 1 club. Bordeaux are said to have offered the star a salary of 92,000 euros a month, reports Xinhua.
His departure would make him the sixth player to leave Corinthians since they won the Brazilian Serie A title in December. The Sao Paulo outfit have already lost Ralf, Jadson, Renato Augusto and Gil to Chinese Super League clubs and Pato to Chelsea.
