Born in Araxá, Minas Gerais, Neto was installed as Atlético Paranaense's first-choice goalkeeper for the 2010 Brazilian Série A season. After being sent off in the first match of the campaign and serving a two-match suspension, he returned and started every game for the club until October, when he was forced to miss several games after being called up for the Brazil national team.
Neto agreed a deal to play for Italian club Fiorentina on January 5, 2011, signing the contract three days later. He made his competitive debut for Fiorentina in the 4th round of the 2011-12 Coppa Italia on November 24, 2011 against local rivals Empoli, which Fiorentina won 2–1.
Neto is set to join Juventus after terminating his contract with ACF Fiorentina at the end of the 2014–15 season.
Neto was in the Brazil squad for the 2012 Olympic tournament, playing in their two opening group stage wins over Egypt and Belarus before being replaced by Gabriel as the nation went on to win the silver medal.
He was one of seven stand-by players named by Dunga for the senior team at the 2015 Copa América, but was eventually called into the main squad after a knee injury to Diego Alves. Neto remained on the bench as Jefferson played as first-choice goalkeeper, and Brazil reached the quarter-finals.
