Cruziero winger and reported Manchester United target Everton Ribeiro claims that he would immediately fit into the Red Devils midfield.

Cruzeiro winger Everton Ribeiro has claimed that he would fit in well at Manchester United, who are understood to be planning a January bid for him.

The Red Devils have been persistently linked with a move for the 24-year-old Brazilian, with David Moyes apparently planning to begin his squad overhaul with a succession of signings in the winter window.

Ribeiro has admitted that the prospect of moving to the Premier League champions is a "dream", and he believes that he could make a smooth and quick transition into the United midfield, partly due to his experience controlling them while playing games consoles.

"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."

Ribeiro recently helped Cruzeiro to win the Brazilian title for the first time in 10 years.
