Jasper Cillessen has passed his Valencia medical and is set to make his move official in the coming days, according to the Valencia-focused show Tribuna VCF.
While the Dutch goalkeeper will leave Barcelona for los ché, Neto will move in the opposite direction, assuming the role as Barça’s second keeper. The move is essentially a swap deal, but it won’t be calculated that way.
The transfers won’t be simultaneous. Instead, Neto will move first, with Cillessen making his transfer shortly after. Due to the way both teams want to calculate their finances, Neto will technically be a signing at the end of the 2018-19 season, while Cillessen will count for the 2019-2020 season, according to Diario SPORT.
