Former Barcelona star, Rivaldo, has advised the club on who to sign between Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar and Atletico Madrid star, Antoine Griezmann this summer’s transfer window.
Both Neymar and Griezmann have been heavily linked with a move to join the La Liga champions this summer.
Asked on who Barcelona should sign between Neymar and Griezmann, Rivaldo told Betfair: “If I could choose one player to sign for Barcelona this summer, it would be Neymar.
“The fans already know what he can do, he proved his value to the club last time he was there and he combines nicely with Messi and Suarez. He’s also a good alternative to lead the attack when Messi isn’t available.
“Griezmann is a great player but signing him would be more of a gamble, as he’s never played at Barcelona or with Messi and Suarez. Of course, if he manages to perform like at Atleti he certainly could be a great addition to the team.
“But I prefer Neymar for the reasons I pointed out above. He knows the club and probably chats with Suarez and Messi regularly.
“Neymar’s return might not make all the fans happy after the way he left for PSG, but if he helps them win the Champions League, fans would forgive anything.”
