Barcelona goalkeeper Neto has reportedly decided that he wants to leave Barcelona at the end of the season, after barely playing ever since he joined the Spanish giants.


According to Italian news outlet Calciomercato, Juventus are keen on signing the Brazilian goalkeeper, considering him even before he voiced his disapproval at the lack of minutes given to him.


The Brazilian has sent in a transfer request to leave the club, and Barcelona are currently looking at options to replace him with.


Neto has struggled for game-time ever since he joined Barcelona from Valencia, with Jasper Cillessen going the other way, as Marc-Andre ter Stegen, seen as one of the best goalkeepers of the world, being first-choice without a doubt.


The 31-year-old has decided that he wants to leave the Balguranas in the summer, and the Spanish side have set an asking price of €15 million, after blocking a January move for him.


Wojciech Szczesny has been a remarkable goalkeeper for Juventus, and Gianluigi Buffon has been an excellent servant for the club, but it is still a question whether he will be playing beyond this season.


As a result, Neto could return to the club he played for between 2015 and 2017, where he made 22 appearances in all competitions during that time, being backup to Buffon, who was the main goalkeeper at the time.


Neto has featured in 11 games in all competitions this season, keeping five clean sheets in the process.
