Barcelona says it has agreed to sell Brazilian forward Malcom to Russian club Zenit St. Petersburg for $44.4 million (40 million euros).

The Spanish champions said on Friday that the deal also includes add-ons of another 5 million euros if certain unspecified conditions are met, and a sell-on clause.

Malcom joined Barcelona from Bordeaux last year in a deal worth 41 million euros (then $47.7 million) but the 22-year-old only scored four goals in 24 appearances in his one season at the club.
