ESPN FC pundit rules out Barcelona duo's January move to Chelsea
- Ousmane Dembele and Malcom had been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in January due to lack of first-team football
- Alejandro Moreno believes both players won't force an alleged move to Chelsea
“Should Dembele or Malcom force a move in January? @murphy260597 tweeted in to the ESPN FC Extra Time show. “Chelsea should be all over these two.”
But the former MLS star, Moreno, ruled out the January move for the Blaugrana attackers, stating both players are 'fine' at Camp Nou. “Well maybe James Murphy is a Chelsea fan and wants the influx of Dembele and Malcom,” he responded. “I don’t think that either one of them should force a move, nor will force a move.
“They’re fine at Barcelona.”
Malcom helped Barcelona to secure the Champions League last-16 spot by scoring his first goal for the La Liga champions in the 1-1 draw against Inter Milan on Tuesday. The Brazilian appeared on the pitch of San Siro in the 81-st minute as a substitute for Dembele. It took only 90 seconds for the 23-year old to score Barca's only goal.
