Barcelona complete the signing of 29-year-old goalkeeper

Barcelona have completed the signing of Brazilian goalkeeper Neto from Valencia for €26m.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper signed a four-year deal.

Neto made 47 match appearances for Valencia, keeping 10 clean sheets.

He will replace Jasper Cillessen who joined Valencia yesterday for 35m euros.

The Brazilian goalkeeper has a buyout clause set at 200m euros (£179m).

Speaking about the move, the La Liga champions said:

The Brazilian goalkeeper has a large presence between the sticks,

His height, at almost two metres, combined with his agility, make Neto a goalkeeper who gives strikers very little net to shoot at.
