Roma joke about Barcelona's Malcom capture

Swedish goalkeeper Robin Olsen's arrival at Roma was announced with a joke that at first seemed to backfire on the club, as Swedish furniture retailers Ikea responded with a witty tweet.

The Serie A side's English language account tweeted a picture including a list of contents showing a person, a shirt, two gloves and two boots, as is often seen inside an Ikea purchase.

"New delivery for #ASRoma," the caption went.

Ikea surprisingly responded through their Italian account, referring to the collapsed deal to take Malcom to the Italian capital, with Barcelona instead securing his services in controversial fashion.

"The goalkeeper is there, the other package could be lost," they wrote.

Never one to be topped, Roma responded with humour, with an image of a search asking "where is my package", along with a caption of "when you order something from IKEA only to find out it's been listed on eBay".
