Putin offers Russian citizenship to Claudinho and Malcom


What’s next after this ad

A time announced on the side of Paris Saint-Germain, Malcom is still a player of Zenit Saint-Petersburg but his future in selection could well take a new turn, in the same way as his teammate Claudinho. Indeed, the two Brazilians obtained nationality this Friday following a decree signed by Vladimir Putin and could therefore aim to play for Russia by 2024 and 2026.

To join the ranks of Sbornaya, however, local rules require that both players must live in Russia for five years. If they have the will, Malcom, who arrived in 2019, could therefore play for Russia in 2024, when Claudinho, who arrived in 2021, will have to wait for him until 2026. It should also be noted that the two men, who have never played for Brazil, will also have to take into account the political context. As a reminder, the Russian national team is still banned by FIFA and UEFA from participating in official matches.
