Malcom has passed all the relevant medical tests - with a double thumbs up included - this morning and bar any last minute changes of plan, the winger will fly out later today to join up with his new teammates in Portland, Oregon.
The Brazilian starlet might even be presented tomorrow in the United States. This is because Barcelona's president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, is also out there and the event could happen at the Dossier Hotel.
The presence of the team and the club's president in the United States might see Malcom have the unusual honour of not being presented at the Camp Nou.
Valverde finally has someone else to play on the wing. The coach's first choice was Willian but a deal proved too expensive and this meant Barça switched targets and instead pipped Roma to the post of signing Malcom.
Malcom will meet his new teammates today as they continue their preparation ahead of their United States tour. It's during preseason when the Brazilian will learn and adapt to Barça's style and where he'll fight to earn a spot in the starting XI.
