Cruzeiro winger Everton Ribeiro has revealed it would be a dream come true to join Manchester United, amid the club's alleged interest in his signature, reports Sport Witness.
According to Lancenet, the Premier League champions recently sent a scout to watch the 24-year-old in action, and after receiving a favourable report from Brazil are now making plans to obtain a work permit for the talented forward.
Red Devils boss David Moyes is ready to offer Ribeiro a contract at Old Trafford, providing all the necessary paperwork can be finalised for the €8million rated star.
Speaking to Brazilian TV last week, Ribeiro expressed his aspirations to sign for a major club, and spoke glowingly about his reported suitors.
"I will continue doing my job here at Cruzeiro but plan on getting to a big club," he said. "It's a dream I've had since young, I've always liked Manchester United."
Ribeiro has also been linked with moves to China, Russia and Qatar in the past, but his agent Robson Ferreira - who owns 40 per cent of the player's rights - made clear his intention to find a European club.
However, if the Cruzeiro man is to complete a move to England then Manchester United must make sure they obtain full ownership, in order to adhere to Premier League rulings.
