In a short message published on Twitter, Barca said: “Malcom is not training with permission of the club in order to resolve his future.”

The Brazilian joined the Catalans from Bordeaux last year in a deal rising to €42m, after making a late decision to head to Camp Nou rather than Roma in Serie A.

The sale of Malcom could help in their pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.
