Manchester United are reportedly keeping tabs on Bordeaux and Brazil Under-23 forward Malcom as Jose Mourinho steps up his search for a wide player.

Manchester United have expressed an interest in Bordeaux forward Malcom, according to reports.

The left-footed 20-year-old has been in great form for the Ligue 1 side this season, scoring seven goals and registering four assists in 17 appearances.

According to The Times, Jose Mourinho is eager to recruit a wide player in January and Malcom's ability to play off either wing is of interest to the Portuguese coach.

United were strongly linked with a move for Ivan Perisic last summer but the Croatia international stayed at Inter Milan, prompting Mourinho to turn his attention elsewhere.

Malcom has scored 15 goals in 65 league games for Bordeaux since joining from Corinthians in 2016 and is reportedly valued at around £26m.
