Santos attacker Yeferson Soltedo says that he would sign a "lifetime contract" at Manchester United.

Santos attacker Yeferson Soteldo has said that he would sign a "lifetime contract" at Manchester United and 'dreams' of representing the Red Devils at some point in the future.

The 22-year-old, who has scored 10 times and registered seven assists in 36 outings for his Brazilian club since arriving last January, is allegedly a transfer target for Everton.

However, the Venezuela international has revealed that he is determined to join the 20-time English champions, naming Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the main reasons behind his "love" for the club.

"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. I always dreamed of playing for Manchester United, the dream remains intact," Gazeta Esportiva quotes Soteldo as saying.

"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.

"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 make a lifetime contract."

Soteldo, who largely operates as a left-sided attacker, has also previously been linked with Tottenham Hotspur.
