Neto set to complete move to Bournemouth from Barcelona

Barcelona goalkeeper Neto is on his way to Premier League new boys Bournemouth.

According to Gerard Romero, Neto will not train with Barcelona today as he prepares his move to England, where he will undergo a medical and sign with the Premier League side.

Although it is yet to be confirmed, it is believed that the Cherries will not pay a transfer fee to secure the services of the 33-year-old.

The offloading of the shot-stopper allows the Blaugrana to further reduce their wage bill.

Neto arrived from Valencia to Barcelona in 2019 to provide competition for Marc-André ter Stegen. However, he failed to displace the German keeper from the starting XI and only made 21 appearances over the course of three seasons in all competitions.

The move will come just hours after midfielder Riqui Puig signed for MLS outfit LA Galaxy. The 22-year-old, who came through the ranks at Barca, joins on a deal until 2025.
