£15m Manchester United target: I play with Rooney and Kagawa in video games

Manchester United target Everton Ribeiro is definitely keen on the Red Devils.

Manchester United have their eye on Brazilian sensation Everton Ribeiro, and it sounds like he is certainly up for a switch.

Full of confidence, he the playmaker indicates he holds United's current stars as his idols - as evidenced by his quotes this evening.

In fact while he lets his agents and club get on with negotiations, it sounds like he is already practising to become part of the team...

He told Brazilian radio: "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."

We just wonder if he has transferred himself across to United already in his computer game to get a sense of added realism.
