​Brazil and ​Barcelona legend, Rivaldo has opened up on the transfer speculation surrounding fellow countryman, ​Neymar, claiming that it would be "very interesting" to see the striker join ​Juventus.


​Neymar has been heavily linked with a move away from Paris Saint-Germain throughout the summer, with the club's sporting director, Leonardo confirming that the player had expressed his desire that he wants to leave.


Former club, Barcelona and rivals, Real Madrid are two of the clubs being linked with his signature and Rivaldo believes that Neymar should choose Juventus over his former club.



"It would be very interesting to see Neymar playing alongside Ronaldo. I think it would be great for Cristiano to have him by his side and the Brazilian would help him throughout the season with goals and assists," Rivaldo said to ​Betfair.


"I imagine them combining in a spectacular and brilliant way together and Neymar could help the team, sharing some responsibilities that, at the moment, are all only Ronaldo's at the moment. The Bianconeri have only one star, so Neymar would be a beneficial move for the club as well as his potential teammates," he added.


With the transfer window set to close on the 2nd of September, it will be interesting to see whether Neymar remains at PSG or makes a move elsewhere.
