Everton Ribeiro has fuelled speculation linking him with a transfer to Manchester United by claiming that he could slot seamlessly into the Red Devils’ midfield.

The 24-year-old was an integral part of the Cruzeiro side who secured the Brazilian Serie A title this season, and has been touted as a potential January target for David Moyes.

Now, the Under-20 Brazil international has admitted that it would be a “dream” to move to a Premier League club, and feels Old Trafford would be an ideal destination.

“I already watch the Premier League games,” Ribeiro told ESPN Brasil. “They are great teams that play in Europe. They are the dream of any player.

“I feel I am ready to play in any part of the world. If you play for Cruzeiro, you can play in any place.

“United have [Shinji] Kagawa, [Wayne] Rooney, [David] De Gea is the goalkeeper. I know them very well because I play with them a lot in video games as they are a great team. You play it one day after the other and know the players even better.

“I would fit in any part of the midfield. I would do well as a playmaker to support the attack.

“I let my agent and Cruzeiro talk about that. When they feel it’s good for both parties, they will let me know. I’ll see and we’ll analyse everything.”
