Man Utd in Santos talks for Yefferson Soteldo

Manchester United are being linked with Santos winger Yefferson Soteldo.

United have held talks with Santos about signing Soteldo, according to local journalist Jorge Nicola.

It's suggested United held a meeting at Santos' headquarters in São Paulo in February but were put off by the €25million asking price for the winger.

The 22-year-old, who represents Venezuela at international level, stated earlier this year: "I've been following Cristiano Ronaldo since I was a child, I saw him at Manchester United and that's why my love and desire to play at Old Trafford.

"I would choose them easy. I would sign a lifetime contract."
