Fiorentina announced on their official site that they signed the Brazilian goalkeeper Norberto Murara Neto from Atletico Paranaense.

The transfer sum was not given but there are rumors that it was around €3 millions and the player will receive around  €800000 a year. The 21 years old goalkeeper who signed a five years deal was brought as a prospect for the future.

Fiorentina already has two great goalkeepers in Frey and Boruc. The move increase the speculations that Frey will be sold at the end of the season.

The French goalkeeper was a target for Manchester United also last summer. The English side is looking to replace Van der Saar who will probably retire at the end of the season.

With this move Fiorentina would probably get a considerably sum of money and more than that the club would lower the wages.It is well known that Frey, Mutu and Gilardino are the only 3 players with big salaries. Mutu will probably leave the club in this transfer period.

Neto started his career at Cruzeiro but made his profesional debut at Atletico Paranaense were he played in 54 games.
