Malcom Filipe Silva de Oliveira has successfully joined Russian side, Zenith Saint Petersburg on a contract that is set to last till 2024.
The Brazilian striker hasn’t had the best of seasons since joining Barcelona from Bordeaux as he has
continually struggled to secure a place in the startup squad.
Malcom in seeking asylum has joined Zenith Saint Petersburg for a fee around €40m where he hopes to revive his career.
The 22 year old joined Barcelona for a fee rising up to €45m when Barcelona hijacked him from a deal with AS Roma.
With just 24 appearances for the Catalans, Malcom struggled to net 4 goals in the 2018/2019 season.
Barcelona are believed to be raising funds to bring back their former forward, Neymar Jnr after they splashed lots of cash on signing Frankie De Jong and Antoine Griezmann.
Neymar’s link has been reported to be lasting until August 8th after PSG gave their deadline to the Catalans who are all out to make sure they land the Brazilian.
