BARCELONA, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Barcelona's substitute goalkeeper Neto has been ruled out of action for up to two months following wrist surgery, the La Liga champions said in a statement on Tuesday.

Barca said the Brazilian, a 26-million-euro ($29.16 million) close season recruit from Valencia, would be sidelined for between six and eight weeks after undergoing surgery to treat a fracture to his left wrist which he sustained in training on Sunday.
