                VITO MANNONE RECOMMENDS THAT ARSENAL SIGN BARCA’S NETO

According to a report by Spanish publication SPORT, as relayed by Sport Witness, Neto is almost certain to leave Barcelona to embark on a new adventure in the summer transfer window. And the next destination for the out-of-favour Brazilian goalkeeper appears to be Arsenal. Neto has joined Barcelona from Valencia in July 2019, with then-Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen replacing him at the Mestalla. But the 32-year-old has ended up committing one of the poorer decisions of his career, as he has played second fiddle to Marc-Andre ter Stegen.


The Brazilian shot-stopper has had to suffice with cup outings and rare appearances in La Liga and UEFA Champions League, with his situation leaving him frustrated. Neto has turned out just 21 times for Barcelona, keeping seven clean sheets. And the veteran goalkeeper is keen on leaving Barcelona this summer to seek regular game-time, with Arsenal among his prospective suitors.

DI CANIO, A BAD MAN MANAGER

AS Monaco shot stopper Vito Mannonebecame a cult hero amongst the Sunderland fans at the Stadium of Light following his transfer from Arsenal.

The Black Cats paid £2m to sign the goalkeeper who had moved to England from his native Italy as a teenager. Vito Mannone played 15 times for the Gunners before signing for Sunderland.

The Italian goalkeeper was the proper success story as the Black Cats’ strategy to sign players from all over the world to boost Di Canio in the bid to establish the club in the top flight failed woefully.
