Malcom, who controversially pulled out of a summer switch to Roma, ‘doesn’t like his situation’ at Barcelona, claims his agent.
Malcom had agreed a deal with Roma, who went as far as announcing his arrival and whose fans were waiting for him at Ciampino airport.
The forward’s head was ultimately turned by Barca, although his €41m move from Bordeaux has yielded just 25 minutes of football.
“Every player needs a period of adaptation and minutes on the pitch to prove their worth,” Junior Minguella told RAC1.
“He hasn’t had them yet, but he’ll prove his worth when he does play. He doesn’t like the situation, but he’s focused and very motivated.”
