The Malcom fiasco last summer is considered one of the most riveting transfer hijack’s of all time. The Brazilian winger snubbed Roma for Barcelona and now has secured a giant move to Russian powerhouse Zenit St.Petersburg.
Malcom was theoretically destined for Rome and Roma fans and press were waiting at Rome airport for the winger’s arrival.
But the Brazilian decided to make a stunning U-turn and completed a move to Barcelona for £36.5m.
Zenit have hilariously listed his playing career at Roma from 22nd July to 23rd July 2018.
The Roma Twitter account has brilliantly responded to it by congratulating Malcom on his move to the Russian league.
“Ultra proud to have had you with us Malcom. Now go bring all that greatness to the Russian league. Good luck at @fczenit_en,” Roma tweeted.
