Liverpool target has hinted that he would like to join Manchester United as he calls the Red Devils his dream team.
The player has been linked to a Premier League move and his agent has claimed that United have held talks with him over a potential deal in January. He can play as an attacking midfielder and as a winger.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is apparently an admirer of the player too and Sky claims that £15million is the estimated worth of Ribeiro.
“I already watch the Premier League games. They are great teams that play in Europe. They are the dream of any player,” he told ESPN Brasil.
“I feel I am ready to play in any part of the world. If you play for Cruzeiro, you can play in any place.
“Manchester 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.”
Ribeiro has kept hiself away from the transfer business and he claims that he will analyse things when his agent will believe it is the right thing to do.
“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,” he added.
