 Barcelona sign goalkeeper Neto from Valencia in £23m deal

Barcelona have announced the signing of Brazil international goalkeeper Neto from LaLiga rivals Valencia.

The 29-year-old, who has a single senior cap, has signed a four-year deal at the Nou Camp after the clubs agreed a fee of 26million Euros – with another 9million Euros in add-ons.

Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillesen moved the other way earlier in the week and Neto will now provide cover for Barca’s first-choice Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

“Valencia CF have reached an agreement with FC Barcelona for the transfer of Brazilian goalkeeper Norberto Murara -‘Neto’,” a statement on Valencia’s website read.

“The club would like to publicly thank him for his commitment, effort and professionalism during his two seasons as a Valencianista, during which he was part of the side that won the 2018/19 Copa del Rey. Valencia CF wish him the best of luck in this new stage of his career.”

Neto was on the bench for the Copa del Rey final win over Barcelona at the end of last season and came up against both Manchester United and Arsenal in the Champions League and Europa League, respectively.
