Barcelona have announced the signing of Brazil international goalkeeper Neto from La Liga rivals Valencia.

The 29-year-old, who has a single senior cap, has signed a four-year deal at the Nou Camp after the clubs agreed a fee of 26million Euros – with another 9million Euros in add-ons.

Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillesen moved the other way earlier in the week and Neto will now provide cover for Barca’s first-choice Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

“Valencia CF have reached an agreement with FC Barcelona for the transfer of Brazilian goalkeeper Norberto Murara -‘Neto’,” a statement on Valencia’s website read.

“The club would like to publicly thank him for his commitment, effort and professionalism during his two seasons as a Valencianista, during which he was part of the side that won the 2018/19 Copa del Rey. Valencia CF wish him the best of luck in this new stage of his career.”

Neto was on the bench for the Copa del Rey final win over Barcelona at the end of last season and came up against both Manchester United and Arsenal in the Champions League and Europa League, respectively.

Manchester United look to have ended their chase for Leicester City ace Harry Maguire after hearing the Foxes’ price tag.

According to the Mirror, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had targeted the centre-back as he aims to rebuild his team over the summer but the paper now reports that the Red Devils will walk away from a making an offer after Leicester wanted £90 million plus £10 million in add-ons.

United were hoping to pay around £60million, the paper says.

With Rafael Benitez’s imminent departure from Newcastle confirmed, attentions are turning to his replacement at St James’ Park.

The Telegraph reports a number of names are in the running, including Patrick Vieira, Steven Gerrard and Mikel Arteta, with Bournemouth Eddie Howe also said to have made the shortlist in their search for a younger coach.

Still with Newcastle, and the Mail says Burnley manager Sean Dyche is also seen as a potential successor, but a £10 million compensation fee could rule him out if the Magpies decide he would be too expensive.

Joao Cancelo is wanted by Manchester City, the Star reports, with talks over a possible £44 million deal said to be under way with Juventus.

Danilo could be on his way out to make way for the 25-year-old, the paper suggests.

Press Association Sport understands formalities, including a medical, are ongoing and Liverpool could be in a position to complete a £1.5million deal in the next couple of days.
