Barça keeper Neto on his way to Bournemouth

FC Barcelona have reached an agreement for the transfer of the Brazilian to the Premier League.

The exit operation at Camp Nou is already underway. Mingueza was the first, of the players not included in the sporting project for this new season, to leave the club. He will now be followed by Neto, who also did not travel to the United States tour, as well as Umtiti, Riqui Puig and Braithwaite.

As reported by journalist Fabrizio Romano, FC Barcelona have reached an agreement with Bournemouth for the transfer of Neto, who is now heading to the Premier League. The goalkeeper is expected to travel in the next 24-48 hours to undergo a medical with his new team.

Several teams have been in contact with the Brazilian, but his salary has always been a stumbling block to greenlighting any of the options that appeared. Offers from the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and even Brazil. In the end, he seems to be convinced by Bournemouth, recently promoted to the first tier of English soccer.

Neto, therefore, will no longer wear the Blaugrana shirt after three seasons in which he never really pushed Ter Stegen for the starting spot. 21 games in three years, in which he has conceded 20 goals, keeping a clean sheet on seven occasions. He will be replaced by Iñaki Peña.
