Santos star Yeferson Soteldo has revealed he would sign a lifetime contract at Old Trafford were he to be offered the chance to sign for Manchester United.
Soteldo joined the Brazilian side in 2019 but has already been linked with an exit.
Reports claimed the 22-year-old was a target for Everton in the January transfer window but the Venezuela international committed his future to Santos before revealing it was his dream to sign for United.
In a new interview, Soteldo reiterated his desire to sign for United and believes he has the attributes to be a success in the Premier League.
“I don’t like rumours, I have my whole family in Venezuela. I want to finish this stage at Santos by December, win the Copa Libertadores and whatever is possible and then take another step,” he told Gazeta Esportiva.
“I always dreamed of playing for Manchester United, the dream remains intact.
“There are many steps to get there, but I feel I can. I want to go to Europe, but not to go and come back.
“I want to go and pursue my career with greater success. I feel like I’m prepared and I have to wait for the right moment to do it.”
The midfielder was asked whether he would accept an offer from United even if the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid were in for his signature.
Soteldo was adamant that United would be his only choice and revealed watching Cristiano Ronaldo kick started his dream of representing the club.
He added: “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.”
