Only seen him play 3 full games but he's got a bit of Mikael Silvestre about him in that he seems to let his opponent get the better of him initially so he can showcase his powers of recovery. The only weak part of his game appears to be his delivery once in the final third, if you think AWB is bad this guy is even worse.
But if Telles is off in the Summer, and it looks like he will be, Malacia would be worth a punt at £15/20m as backup to Lard Ar*e who sadly will be going nowhere.
I'm watching Malacia against Marseille.
He doesn't look special. He certainly doesn't look fast at all for a fullback. Can't see anything else than a replacement for Telles on the bench. We should use your money elsewere.
Heard a bit of a scouting report on him from someone who watches the Dutch league.
They said the end product can be a little bit hit and miss with him but he's been improving and he's got the engine to get up and down for 90 minutes and is tidy on the ball. Great attitude and improving all the time.
