New Barcelona signing Malcom hailed the stature of the La Liga champions after turning his back on an expected transfer to Roma.
The 21-year-old secured a “dream” €41 million (£36.5m/$48m) move to Camp Nou on Tuesday, just a day after Bordeaux announced they had accepted a bid from Roma.
Malcom, a Brazil youth international, described his sudden switch to Barca as the fulfilment of a boyhood ambition.
“This is a unique experience. I feel really happy. It’s a dream come true to come to one of the biggest clubs in the world,” he told Barca TV.
“I hope to make the fans happy. I’m really looking forward to meeting my team-mates, to talk to them and find out more about the way we play.
“I’m really excited and in a hurry to get started. It’s difficult to explain the feeling. It’s a dream come true since I was young.”
