Jose Mourinho held talks with French side to secure 20-year-old winger for £40m

Bordeaux attacker Malcom has announced that he is having English lessons after being linked with moves to Manchester United and Arsenal.

The Stories have suggested that Jose Mourinho’s side have already held negotiations with Bordeaux about a £40 million agreement for the 20-year-old winger.

However, Arsenal are also interested in the South American and have reportedly entered talks over a transfer this month.

Malcom has now given a massive indication that the Premier League club could be his next team after suggesting on Instagram that he is studying English.

Last month, Bordeaux reported that Malcom would not be permitted to leave the team in the January transfer window.

“He will not leave this winter,” –  the Ligue 1 club’s president Stephane Martin told L’Equipe.

“What if we go an immediate loan deal back? I don’t see that being in the interests of the club to do that.

“We have not spoken about it, and it is not something we are working on.”
