Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman said that Neto’s goalkeeper will not leave the club, despite the interest of London’s Arsenal.
« It is true that his representative asked the club for a transfer, but we said no, because he is an important goalkeeper for us, we want us to have enough players in every position, » Goal quotes Kuman.
In the summer, the Gunners’ head coach Mikel Arteta was personally interested in the transition of the 31-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper. Now the London club would like to increase the team’s goalkeeper resources and was ready to negotiate the lease of the Brazilian before the end of the season, with the possibility of acquiring in the summer on a permanent basis.
This season, Neto has conceded 7 goals in 9 meetings for Barcelona in all tournaments, and has defended zero in 4 matches.
