Even though the Bavarian’s boss suggested potential interest in the winger, he has now insisted that his team will not be setting Malcom as their target.

Bayern Munich head coach Jupp Heynckes has caused a bit of confusion with his recent comments on Malcom, by claiming that the Bavarians are not interested in the winger regardless of his suggestions that they were.

Malcom has been heavily linked with a number of European grands for the past few months, with United, Arsenal and Spurs supposedly leading the race.

And while Bayern appeared to have joined the race, their manager has not confirmed that the 21-year-old is not on their radar.

“I have never seen him play,” Heynckes told a media conference, according to Goal. “Therefore, I am not able give an opinion on him.

“But I don’t think there is interest here. He always gets put into the shopping window but nobody really goes after him.”
