Barcelona is prepared to raise more funds this summer in a bid to remain active in the ongoing transfer market as they look to sell one of their valuable assets to a Premier League team.
The Camp Nou outfit is prepared to cash in on Neto Murara this summer as Bournemouth are prepared to bring the former Valencia number 1 to Vitality Stadium for this season.
Bournemouth and Barcelona have reached advanced stages of the negotiation and both parties are feeling good about the potential deal.
Neto has been unable to unsettle Marc-Andre ter Stegen as the first-choice goalkeeper at Barcelona since he arrived from Valencia in the summer of 2019.
The Brazillian has made just 21 appearances across all competitions in three seasons with the club.
Barcelona is prepared to promote Inaki Pena to understudy ter Stegen for the next season and Neto,33, is told to find a club that can accommodate him after three years on the Barcelona bench.
Napoli was once in the race to sign him but the Serie A team has directed their attention to the most expensive goalkeeper in the world Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is closer to leaving the Stamford Bridge team on a season-long loan.
Bournemouth is of the view that the goalkeeper will bring the right balance to the team in terms of experience ahead of the coming season.
Neto is also cool with Bournemouth’s approach and he is ready to listen to their offer and the business is beneficial to him, Barcelona and Bournemouth.
Arnau Tenas will be given the nod to be Barcelona’s third-choice goalkeeper once Neto leaves the club.
