Posted by

Barcelona have just confirmed the arrival of Valencia first-team goalkeeper Neto.

The Brazilian will become Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s back-up following Jasper Cillessen’s departure.

Neto’s transfer fee is set to be at 26 million euros fixed plus a further nine million euros in add-ons.

If all the variables are met, he would cost the same sum that Cillessen – 36 million euros, as per FC Barcelona official website.

Neto will sign a four-year deal which will keep him at the Camp Nou stadium until the end of the 2022/2023 campaign.

There is a €200million release clause included in his contract, according to the official club’s media.

Neto is a 29-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper who used to play for Fiorentina and Juventus before joining Valencia in the summer of 2018 for €7million.

Transfermarkt currently price him at €18million.

Last season, Neto made 47 appearances for Valencia in all competitions, conceding 49 goals and keeping 14 clean sheets.

Neto also registered the second-highest save percentage in La Liga last season as he saved 75,9% of the shot he faced, according to Opta.
