Everton Ribeiro To United?

With speculation rife that Cruzeiro’s Everton Ribeiro will leave the Brasileiro Serie A for Manchester United and the English Premier League, Cruzeiro president Gilvan Ribeiro admits it will be difficult to keep the 24-year-old at the club.

“We know it will be hard to keep him after Libertadores,” said the Cruzeiro president.

“But we don't intend to sell of our players before Libertadores, we want to keep the squad, that will be our biggest investment in the team.”

The 2014 Copa Libertadores is the biggest club competition in the world and Cruzeiro will be taking part in it next year after Everton Ribeiro played a big part in seeing his team to the Brasileiro Serie A title.

The player, himself, admits he will not depart from the club until the end of the Copa Libertadores.

For the mean time he is enjoying his holiday and then will turn his attention back to football in the New Year.

“There is a lot of speculation, but for now I am just enjoying my vacation,” said Everton Ribeiro.

“I'll present myself at Cruzeiro on 6 January to have a good pre-season and another great year at Cruzeiro.

“I don't know what will happen after Libertadores.

“Football is very dynamic, I'll do like I did this year, step by step.

“Everything is working out little by little, Cruzeiro have a great squad, everyone treats me well and I am very happy there.”
