After a year of good and bad moments, it looks as though Malcom’s time with Barcelona has come to an end. The Brazilian is expected to be moving to Russia as Barça and FC Zenit have reached an agreement on a €40 million transfer plus €5 million in variables, according to a report from Diario SPORT.

There was no traction on a move for Malcom after Everton’s interest cooled off over the weekend, but the last 48 hours brought not only interest but a real offer from Zenit, who agreed personal terms on a 5-year deal with Malcom before negotiating with Barça. The Russians initially offered €35 million, then accepted Barça’s counteroffer and the deal moved quickly after that.

Malcom is currently in Barcelona training with his soon-to-be former teammates, and an announcement is expected to be made very soon.
