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.
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.
