Neto’s last game with Barça

André Ter Stegen’s injury will allow Norberto Murara, Neto, to say goodbye on the pitch. The Brazilian goalkeeper has signed two more years of contract, but in Ipurúa, against Eibar, he will play his last game as a Blaugrana.

Neto landed at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2019, in a barter between Valencia and Barça that took Jasper Cillessen to Mestalla. But as happened to the Dutch international, the Brazilian has had to live in the shadow of Ter Stegen.

  • The Spanish team shows muscle before an exciting summer.

In his two seasons as a Blaugrana, Neto has only played 16 games. Five in his first campaign and eleven this year. A good part of them, due to those problems in the right knee that Ter Stegen has been dragging on since the beginning of 2020 and that now have led him to follow a therapeutic treatment that will begin on May 20 in Göteborg under the supervision of Dr. Hakan Alfredson.

The final of the Spanish Super Cup against Atlético

The Brazilian played two LaLiga Santander matches last year, one in the Champions League, one in the Copa del Rey and the final of the Super Cup that Barça lost to Atlético (2-3) in the absence, due to injury, of Ter Stegen .

The German underwent surgery this summer, which allowed Neto to play nine consecutive games at the start of the campaign, for a total of eleven: six from LaLiga Santander, three from the Champions League and two from the Copa del Rey. In the 16 games played, the Brazilian has conceded 15 goals.

His last appearance was on January 27, 2021, in the victory against Rayo Vallecano (1-2) in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey. More than three months ago.

Bet on Iñaki Peña and Arnau Tenas

At this point, neither party seems interested in fulfilling the remaining two years of the contract. The Baça, because its punished coffers advise to lower the salary mass of the first team. In this sense, the club is willing to bet on the quarry, with Iñaki Peña or Arnau Tenas as more logical alternatives, since both have been habitual in the first team calls this season.

Neto is not interested in continuing either. In fact, the Brazilian already asked to leave during the last winter market. Arsenal was behind his incorporation, but the high economic pretensions of Barça, which valued his departure at 21 million, prevented it.
