Barcelona presented Brazil goalkeeper Neto on Tuesday, following his move from Valencia.

Neto signed a four-year contract with the Spanish champions.

The transfer was part of a swap which saw Barcelona sell Jasper Cillessen to Valencia.

Barcelona paid 26 million euros ($29.5 million) plus another 9 million euros ($10.2 million) in variables for Neto, while Valencia paid Barcelona 35 million euros ($40 million) for Cillessen.

Neto will replace Cillessen, who played as a backup for Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the Champions League and the Spanish league and only regularly started in the Copa del Rey.

The 29-year-old Neto helped Valencia qualify for the Champions League with a fourth-place finish in La Liga in the past two seasons.
