Former Palermo and Lazio football chief Walter Sabatini has backed Juventus' pursuit of Santos whiz Neymar. Sabatini says Juve should take a gamble and sign the player, who is also wanted by Chelsea and Manchester City.

He told "Neymar is an immeasurable talent. I do not know whether he has the necessary rigorous discipline that would serve him to play now at Juventus, but if the Bianconeri signed him he would certainly be a proper technical investment.

"There is always the risk of the operation and the value for money to be defined. In this sense I believe Neymar is risky, but a club like Juventus must be able to take such risks."
