Liverpool are competing with Manchester United for Cruzeiro winger Everton Ribeiro.

Liverpool, as well as Manchester United, have sent their scouts to watch one of Brazil's most highly-rated players, Everton Ribeiro, says the Daily Mail.

While Liverpool are keen on the Brazilian, it appears that he would favour a move to Old Trafford.

"I will continue doing my job here at Cruzeiro but plan on getting to a big club, it's a dream I've had since I was young, I've always liked Manchester United," Ribeiro told Sportv in a recent interview.

"I haven't talked with my agent yet. I asked him to talk only with Cruzeiro and let me focus here as I still have one more game to play and I want to end this league well."
