Barcelona have confirmed that goalkeeper Neto has joined the club from Valencia in a deal worth €26 million plus €9m in add-ons.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper replaces Japer Cillessen, who moved the other way on Wednesday, and will be back up to first choice Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Neto has signed a four-year deal at the club and has a release clause of €200 million.

The Brazilian has spent the last two seasons at Valencia after arriving from Juventus and enjoyed a pretty strong campaign last time out.

However, there have been rumors he’s fallen out with coach Marcelino, which might help explain why he’s willing to give up a starting spot at Valencia for a place on the bench at Barcelona.
