Cruzeiro's Everton Ribeiro: I would fit in well at Man Utd!

Cruzeiro star Everton Ribeiro believes he would be a great fit for Manchester United's midfield.

The 24-year old Brazilian is continually being linked with a January move to Old Trafford and told ESPN Brasil that he feels he would do well in David Moyes' setup amongst some players he knows well from playing video games.

"I already watch the Premier League games," Ribeiro said. "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 (Shinji) Kagawa, (Wayne) Rooney, (David) 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."
