As per the speculations, the Old Ladies are ready to tempt Paris Saint-Germain with an offer which would include Paulo Dybala and a hefty sum of cash.
As a result, Neymar's compatriot Rivaldo has advised him consider a move to Juve, highlighting the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo as one that could aid the forward succeed.
"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," he told 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," Rivaldo added.
