Ribeiro: I would fit in any midfield position at Manchester United

Everton Ribeiro has given a big indication that he would like a move to Manchester United in January by admitting that he is a big fan of the club and has the versatility necessary to succeed at United.

The 24-year-old was named the Brazilian League’s Player of the Year for 2013 after he played a central role in Cruzeiro’s title winning campaign.

His representatives have already met with United staff and the player previously admitting it was a dream to play for United, so he is doing everything he can to make sure United know he is interested in a move to Old Trafford.

“I already watch the Premier League games,” Ribeiro said.

“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.”

This year in the Brazilian League, Ribeiro got the most assists in the league (11) and has been touted for a potential call-up to the Brazil squad for the 2014 World Cup due to his form.

The fact he feels he could play in any position across the midfield puts him in a strong position as United are in need of a central midfielder and if he can bring that level of performance to the Premier League, he could be a great signing.

Later this week, we will have a scouting report on Ribeiro to find out if he is good enough to be a United player.
