Manchester United are keeping tabs on Bordeaux forward Malcom in the summer transfer window, according to The Sport Review.

The report has suggested that sources close to the player have told The Sport Review that United are monitoring the 21-year-old in the current transfer window.

It would require a significant transfer fee to take him from Bordeaux given how he scored 12 times in 35 appearances in Ligue 1 last term, which is an impressive return for a winger.

However, United are likely to face competition for Malcom’s signature, amid speculation linking Tottenham with a move to sign the talented youngster.

France Football and Le 10 Sport this week reported that Spurs have met with the player’s entourage recently in order to discuss a deal for the Brazilian.

A brief look at headlines this past week would suggest to anyone that Jose Mourinho wants to sign a winger this summer, with Real Madrid star Gareth Bale a top target, along with Chelsea ace Willian.
