Bordeaux striker Malcom has hinted that he would be open to joining Manchester United if the Red Devils launch a bid for him in the summer.

The 20-year-old Brazilian striker has scored seven goals in 35 Ligue 1 appearances for Bordeaux this season and has also been linked with United's arch-rivals Liverpool. He joined the French club from Corinthians in January 2016.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is understood to be in the market for a striker in the summer following the serious knee injury suffered by Zlatan Ibrahimovic last month.

In addition to Malcom, United have also been linked with Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, Torino's Andrea Belotti and Monaco's Kylian Mbappe.

"Even when I was at Corinthians these rumours [of a move to United] were already happening," Malcom was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

"I have a calm mind about that. I have a focused thought on the pitch and I leave it to my agent and my family to take care of.

"Then, who knows, if a bid comes up I'll think of leaving, but now I'll just concentrate on playing football."

Malcom said in February that he was unaware of any interest from Liverpool or United and insisted that he was only focused on doing well for Bordeaux.

"I don't know anything about Liverpool or Manchester United," the 20-year-old told Goal.

"I'm very calm. I'm only thinking of Bordeaux today. I want to do my job well and give the French fans lots of joy.

"I will continue to work hard with my usual humility."

Earlier this week, Everton striker Lukaku reacted with anger after reports suggested that the Belgian forward preferred a summer move to United over Chelsea.

"Some media these days are annoying man. As long as I didn't make a public statement about my situation please stay out of my business," he wrote on Twitter.
