Former Brazil great has given transfer advice to Real Madrid and Barcelona club legends Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi.
“A player has to be professional, and if you have good offers, I don’t think it’s okay to hear them,” former Brazil international Rivaldo told Betfair about Ramos.
“Of course, Sergio Ramos would be a good signing for Barcelona. It would be historic and it would be controversial because of Sergio Ramos’ history with Real Madrid.”
On Messi, he had a different notion.
“If I were [PSG head coach Mauricio] Pochettino, I would tell the owner of PSG that we’d better stay the way we are before bringing in Messi,” Rivaldo said. “I like Messi, but [Kylian] Mbappe is at home and there would also be everyone in their team.
“It is difficult to talk about a change from Messi to Mbappe, because football is money and if Messi goes to PSG, he will have many economic benefits. But of course, Messi is already more than 30 years old and in PSG there is already Mbappe with 22 years. It is difficult.
“PSG, I repeat, I think they do not need any signings because they have a great team… but football is also a business.”
