Brazil legend Rivaldo calls on Juventus to sign Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar in this summer's transfer window.

Brazil legend Rivaldo has called on Juventus to sign Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar ahead of the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The former Santos youngster is widely expected to leave the French champions over the next couple of weeks, with Spain's two biggest clubs said to be going head to head for the 27-year-old.

Juve have also been credited with an interest in the South American, though, and Rivaldo has said that Cristiano Ronaldo would benefit immensely if Neymar were to join the Italian champions.

"This transfer can only be complete if Barcelona decide to invest on him as he is an expensive player, and it now seems like Juventus are also thinking about signing Neymar," Rivaldo told Betfair.

"It would be great to see him playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. I believe it would be wonderful for CR7 to have Neymar by his side, as the Brazilian would help him a lot with assists and goals all season.

"I even imagine them combining for brilliant plays and Neymar could also help by sharing responsibilities as Juventus only has one big star now. It would be a beneficial move for the players and naturally for the club."

PSG are believed to have turned down Barca's opening bid for the attacker which would have seen him re-join the Spanish champions on an initial loan deal.
