In August, Malcom turned into the signing crashes of the Zenith of St. Petersburg, that engaged to pay to the FC Barcelona a total of 40 million fixed euros more an extra part of five in concept of variables. The culés, that possibly take out four 'kilos' extra of profit with regard to the 41 that does a year paid to the Girondins for ficharle, rubbed the hands by the agreement.
After not being able to have all the opportunities that had wanted, Malcom decided to look for them was and accept the offer of the Zenith, that offered to the Barça the possibility to recover the investment and to him to go back to feel important in a competitive team. However, the raw reality is that the first month and half of the Brazilian extreme in Russia has been a suplicio.
To his arrival to the Zenith, went object of a racist campaign organised by a sector of the most radical fans of the club, that goes against of players sudamericanos and African. In fact, this carried to rumours that especulaban with a possible sale of the ex Barcelona in winter, although these were denied by both parts. Anyway, the arrival of Malcom opened a schism between part of these ultras and the directive, to which accused of betrayal by the arrival of the Brazilian.
To sportive level and moved away of said controversial, to Malcom neither has gone him well and, in a month and half, only has been able to play 60 minutes delivered in two meetings. Afterwards, an injury of hip left him in the dry dam and his comeback does not expect until the month of October.
Malcom, also without luck in the Barça
Unfortunately for Malcom, neither could fulfil his dream to triumph in the FC Barcelona. When it arrived pertinent of the Girondins, Ernesto Valverde recognised that it treated of a signing of club in which he had not taken part, something that maybe influenced in the few opportunities that the extreme had during his first and only season in the Camp Nou.

Maybe, these so many in important parties gave him poster so that the Zenith decided to pay 45 'kilos' to carry it.
