Malcom’s agent warns Inter will not be able to sign his client on loan with an option to buy, but the Bordeaux attacker was missing from training on Friday.
Bordeaux President Stephane Martin was forced to issue a statement, explaining Malcom’s absence on the first day of his club’s preseason was due to ‘family reasons’.
However, Federico Garcia made it clear Les Girondins were not prepared to loan the Brazilian to the Nerazzurri, unless their offer included a compulsory purchase option.
“Inter are a great club, but he won’t be able to join the Nerazzurri on loan with only an option to buy,” he was quoted as saying by Calciomercato.com.
“Without an obligatory option, Bordeaux won’t accept [their offer].”
