Manchester United boss David Moyes has been monitoring Brazilian star Everton Ribeiro, according to the player's agent.
As reported by Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Ribeiro's agent has insisted that Red Devils boss David Moyes has been impressed with the 24-year-old.
The attacking-midfielder, who was recently named Brazil's Player of the Year, has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford and it now seems likely that the Old Trafford boss will make a move for the star.
Everton Ribeiro's representative Robson Ferreira said: "David Moyes is delighted with him. I have personally been to a club representative in England and people who actively participate in the day to day club and impressed. In view of Manchester, is a complete medium."
Manchester United certainly seem in desperate need of recruiting a new midfielder with their side lacking depth in the middle of the park.
The Red Devils currently have Michael Carrick out with an injury and the likes of Tom Cleverley, Anderson and Phil Jones have failed to impress on a consistent basis.
Manchester United's summer midfield signing, Marouane Fellaini has also struggled since arriving at the club and Moyes has had to rely on 40-year-old Ryan Giggs on a number of occasions.
David Moyes may now bring Ribeiro to Old Trafford in order to add quality to his struggling side.
