Agent: Malcom to Lazio not true

Malcom’s agent insists there is ‘no truth’ in speculation that Lazio want the out-of-favour Barcelona forward.

Sport reported on Sunday that Lazio had asked for Malcom, just six months on from his €41m switch to Barca from Bordeaux.

However, Luis Fernando Menezes Garcia wrote on social media that ‘there’s no truth in the Lazio-Malcom hypothesis’.

The Brazilian, who turns 22 next month, had agreed terms with Roma last summer and was expected at the airport with his medical booked when he suddenly switched flights.

He received a call from Barca and made the move there instead, but he has gone on to play just nine times for the Blaugrana.
