Ribeiro has admitted a move to Old Trafford suits him, thanks to a Sir Alex lecture, Ribeiro noted:
“Yes, I would prefer that [to join Manchester United].
“The structure they have in place is one of the best in the world. I have been there already and went to a lecture by Alex Ferguson when I was younger.
“I feel I am ready to play in any part of the world. If you play for Cruzeiro, you can play in any place.
“I would fit in any part of the midfield. I would do well as a playmaker to support the attack.”
The main question is would David Moyes take a chance on a 24 year-old who’s never played in the Premier League – or even Europe for that matter?
