Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen passes Valencia medical

Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has passed a medical at Valencia ahead of his move to the Mestalla, report Marca.

It follows on from reports in El Mundo Deportivo and RAC1 have claimed there had been a total agreement between the clubs for a swap deal which would see Los Che shot-stopper Neto move the other way.

It is said by the reports that both goalkeepers are valued at €30m - Cillessen is set to earn the same wage at the Mestalla while Neto is set to double or triple his current salary.

Cillessen, a Dutch international, has a contract at the Camp Nou running through until June 2021 and containing a €60m release clause, while it is believed he wants more first-team football.

The shot-stopper has featured in just 32 games in three seasons at the Camp Nou - of which 24 were in the Copa, with just five in La Liga and three in the Champions League.

The 29-year-old joined Barca from Ajax in 2016 but has struggled to dislodge Marc-Andre Ter Stegen from the number one spot.

Valencia and Benfica have both been heavily linked with a summer move for the shot-stopper and now Los Che are said to be favourites to land his signature.

Neto, 29, moved to the Mestalla from Juventus at the start of the 2017-18 season and the Brazilian international has established himself as first choice at the club under Coach Marcelino.
