Brazilian winger Malcom has joined Zenit St Petersburg from Barcelona in a £36.5m deal.
The 22-year-old was a subject of a late drama in last season’s summer transfer, after he was hijacked from AS Roma by FC Barcelona.
He scored four goals in 24 appearances for the La Liga champions last season, after his move from Bordeaux last year.
His transfer to the Russian Premier League leaders brings an end to a nightmarish campaign in Spain where he had to endure time on the bench.
Malcom is yet to make his senior international debut, despite being called up first in 2018.
