The 25-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper Norberto Murara Neto joined the Viola four years ago and the club have recently announced he has made the decision not to renew his contract. He will leave at the end of the season. Fiorentina have announced that goalkeeper Neto will leave the club when his contract runs out. He joined the Serie A team from Atletico Paranaense in January 2011. He soon became the regular first choice goalkeeper. Neto's deal at Stadio Artemio Franchi is now in its final months and the team announced on Saturday that he will be moving on.
A statement from the club was as follows: "ACF Fiorentina must announce that goalkeeper Norberto Murara Neto today officially informed the club of his intention not to prolong his contract with the Viola. The decision is definitive... Neto was keen to make it known that his decision is entirely unrelated to financial motivations, with his desire to be free to decide his own future the sole reason behind his move." Fiorentina face bottom of the league side Parma on Tuesday.
