The transfer saga surrounding Malcom has created shockwaves across both France and Italy. With Roma preparing to roll out the red carpet for their new signing, Bordeaux blocked the move at the last minute following a conversation with Barcelona. And it wasn't only the player who was surprised by the late change - so were members of his family.

According to Italian outlet 'Premium Sport', Malcom's mother was flying to Rome when the news broke about the deal being blocked. This meant that she landed in Italy, unlike her son, and is awaiting further developments.

It's unknown whether Malcom's mother will now fly out to Barcelona or whether, learning from her previous experience, she'll wait for a transfer to be made official before buying another plane ticket.
