The last thing we need is an attacking midfielder.

How hard is it to just focus on our one and only pathetic area of our squad and improve on it?

Jesus.
TBF, we badly need a winger or two as well, and given this guy played predominantely from the right for Cruzeiro, and won the Brazilian POTY doing so, Im not at all opposed to bringing him in to see what he can do.

http://thebusbyway.com/2013/12/07/agent-confirms-talks-with-uniteds-for-complete-midfielder/

The agent of Cruziero's Everton Ribeiro has confirmed that Manchester United are interest in his player, and claims to have held talks with United representatives.

The Cruziero forward has emerged as a United target in recent weeks, with Ribeiro telling Brazilian TV he would like a move to Old Trafford.

Having starred in Cruzeiro's title winning season, the Brazilian could move on despite just one season at Belo Horizonte according to his agent Robson Ferreira.

Ferreira told local press:

"Man Utd want him. Moyes has been impressed. I’ve already been to England and talked personally with their representative.

"In United’s opinion he’s the complete midfielder.”

"It’s been an emotional season fighting for the title, and collective and personal honours. The final decision is with the player."

Moyes yesterday confirmed he is looking to bring players in during the January transfer window in an effort to save United's floundering season, so Ribeiro could make a £8m move to Manchester as early as next month if his agent's claims are to be believed.

Ribeiro: I would fit in any midfield position at Manchester United

Everton Ribeiro has given a big indication that he would like a move to Manchester United in January by admitting that he is a big fan of the club and has the versatility necessary to succeed at United.

The 24-year-old was named the Brazilian League’s Player of the Year for 2013 after he played a central role in Cruzeiro’s title winning campaign.

His representatives have already met with United staff and the player previously admitting it was a dream to play for United, so he is doing everything he can to make sure United know he is interested in a move to Old Trafford.

“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 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.”

This year in the Brazilian League, Ribeiro got the most assists in the league (11) and has been touted for a potential call-up to the Brazil squad for the 2014 World Cup due to his form.

The fact he feels he could play in any position across the midfield puts him in a strong position as United are in need of a central midfielder and if he can bring that level of performance to the Premier League, he could be a great signing.

Later this week, we will have a scouting report on Ribeiro to find out if he is good enough to be a United player.

Transfer News: Cruzeiro midfielder Everton Ribeiro open to Manchester United move

Everton Ribeiro has told ESPN Brasil that he would fit into Manchester United's midfield and would welcome the chance to play for the Premier League champions.

United have been strongly linked with a January move for Ribeiro, who has recently helped Cruzeiro to win the Brazilian title.

The 24-year-old was also named the league's best player and his agent claimed last week that talks have been held with United.

Cruzeiro have also stated that they are aware of interest from the Red Devils, but have not received any offers for Ribeiro, who has also been mooted as a target for Liverpool.

A fee in the region of £15million has been suggested for a January deal and Ribeiro believes he is capable of playing in the Premier League.

"I already watch the Premier League games," Ribeiro told ESPN Brasil. "They are great teams that play in Europe. They are the dream of any player.



"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."

When asked if he will be playing alongside Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, the midfielder said: "It would be great.

"I let my agent and Cruzeiro talk about that. When they feel it's good for both parties, they will let me know. I'll see and we'll analyse everything."

Ribeiro added to Gazeta Esportiva: "There is always speculation after a great performance in a competition, but I am a Cruzeiro player.

"I'll rest a lot, enjoy the holidays with my family and return fully charged in January. I let Cruzeiro and my agent handle the negotiations."

I hope he is as good as it takes our midfield to be better than what we are currently. Still the question remains if he can play in the 2 man midfield, but then I think back and reconcile that he would be better than Cleverly and Ando to begin with atleast.
