AC Milan and Inter sound out move for Barcelona goalkeeper Neto

The Brazilian stopper wants to leave Camp Nou in search of first team football

Barcelona are trying to move on their squad players but the market is tough and with two international tournaments ongoing there's not a lot going on.

One player, though, who will not continue at the club is the goalkeeper Neto, who wants more minutes and Barça will open the door to an exit for the right offer.

Milan and Inter have shown an interest in the stopper, who previously played for Fiorentina and Juventus before moving to Valencia. Barça would be willing to sell or listen to player exchange offers.

Neto has a good reputation in Italy from his first spell in Serie A. Barça signed him in exchange for Jasper Cillessen in a deal worth around €26 million.

They would not let him go for €16m, with Premier League side Everton also showing an interest in the Brazilian earlier in the window.

Milan need a goalkeeper with Donnarumma set to join PSG -- although they have already agreed to sign Lille's Mike Maignan, too -- and Inter are also after competition for Handanovic, who at 37 is coming to the end of his career at the top level.

Both clubs have asked about Neto and his agent, Giuliano Bertolucci, has been in Milan for talks. Roma have also asked about a loan.

Neto wants to leave Barça as he's failed to take Marc ter Stegen's place in the team. He wants to play regularly and hopes to return to the Brazil squad.

Barça's plan is to promote Iñaki Peña to No.2 next season if they can move Neto on.
