Brazilian goalkeeper Neto is on his way to Barcelona from Valencia in an exchange deal with Jasper Cillessen, Barca's backup 'keeper heading the other way, the Spanish champions said Thursday. Neto, 29, has signed a four-year deal at Camp Nou for 26 millions Euros with nine million in add-ons and a 200 million release clause, Barcelona announced on their website. Dutchman Cillessen's departure in the opposite direction was announced the previous day for a similar sum. He arrived at the Spanish giants in 2016 as understudy to Marc-Andre ter Stegen. He never managed to unseat the German star who remains the first choice goalkeeper with Neto, 29, formerly of Fiorentina and Juventus, moving in as number two.
