The former Brazil Under-20 international has been heavily linked with a possible move to Old Trafford when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year after a string of eye-catching displays for his club side of late.
In fact, Ribeiro has recently been voted the best player in the Brazilian championship after helping to steer his team to the league title, and it those brilliant performances that the attacking midfielder now hopes will earn him a transfer to Europe at the turn of the year, and in particular to the Theatre of Dreams.
In total so far in this campaign, the 24-year-old has managed to register five goals and eight assists in his 30 league matches for Cruzeiro and the Brazilian says that he is already a huge fan of the Premier League giants and a number of their star players.
“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 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 a contract with Cruzeiro that currently runs until June 30 2016 and it is expected that United would need to pay a transfer fee of at least £15 million in order to be able to land the player next year.
