Ribeiro eyes United move

Cruzeiro player Everton Ribeiro believes he could be the answer to Manchester United’s midfield woes.

• Mitten: Struggling to adapt
• Payne: Tumble has long roots
• Okwonga: Uncertain terrain

United have struggled to strengthen their engine room and have been linked to a number of high profile midfielders in the January window.

But Ribeiro, who is rumoured to be on United’s shopping list, said it would be a ‘dream’ to play for David Moyes’ team.  

"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 Kagawa, Rooney, 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."

However, the 24-year-old admitted that, for the time being, the move was out of his hands.

"It would be great,” he said. "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."

Ribeiro added to Gazeta Esportiva: "There is always speculation after a great performance in a competition, but I am a Cruzeiro player.

"I'll rest a lot, enjoy the holidays with my family and return fully charged in January. I let Cruzeiro and my agent handle the negotiations."
