Malcom has reportedly chosen his number at Barcelona – and it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
The No7 shirt has been unused since Arda Turan left last season, with the understanding that it was being saved for Antoine Griezmann while talks reached an advanced stage about bringing the Frenchman to the Camp Nou.
Griezmann decided to stay at Atletico Madrid instead, and according to Catalan Radio Malcom is going to reap the benefits of that decision, as he’ll get to keep the number he wore at Bordeaux last season.
Barcelona’s No7 shirt has previously been worn by the likes of David Villa, Luis Figo, and Henrik Larsson.
