Aderbar Melo dos Santos Neto (born 17 March 1990), commonly known as Santos, is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Athletico Paranaense and the Brazil national team.

Club career

Born in Campina Grande, Paraíba, Santos joined Athletico Paranaense's youth setup in 2008, aged 18. He was promoted to the main squad in 2010, as a fourth-choice.

Santos made his professional debut on 17 November 2012, starting in a 0–0 away draw against Criciúma, for the Série B championship. In 2013, he was promoted to second-choice, only behind Wéverton.

A starter during the year's Campeonato Paranaense (which Furacão only used under-23 players), Santos made his Série A debut on 20 October 2013, replacing injured Weverton in a 0–3 away loss against Goiás.

Santos remained as a backup to Weverton in the following seasons. In 2018, as the latter departed to Palmeiras, he became an undisputed starter. On 18 April of that year, he extended his contract until October 2020.

International career

On 19 September 2019, after lifting the 2019 Copa do Brasil, Santos was called up to the Brazil national team by manager Tite for two friendlies against Senegal and Nigeria, in October.

On 17 June 2021, Santos was named in the Brazil squad for the 2020 Summer Olympics.
