New Barcelona goalkeeper Neto has been talking about life at his new club and feels he will improve from playing with Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The Brazilian has arrived as the German’s back-up, following Jasper Cillessen’s move to Valencia, and is looking forward to the challenge of playing for Barcelona.

“It’s a style where you have to participate much more. The goalkeeper is always watched with a magnifying glass, but I am very prepared.

“Being able to play with Ter Stegen will make me much better. Playing against Barça is always unpredictable and doing so next to Messi will be a lot easier.”

Neto has been training with the team this week and will hope to make his Barcelona during the club’s pre-season friendlies in Japan and the United States.
