Venezuelan star Yefferson Soteldo won’t stop talking about how much he’d love to play for Manchester United.
The Santos winger has given many interviews saying he dreams of playing for the Red Devils, and this time, he’s claimed he’d sign a life-long contract with the club.
He’s said it in the El Drink Team podcast, with quotes brought by Gazeta Esportiva. First speaking of his future at Santos, Soteldo claims he wants to continue at the club this year, and then get a move to Europe.
“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.
“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.”
He’s been asked if he’d choose Manchester United over the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid, and had no doubt about 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 is still 22 years old, and by the potential he’s been showing at Santos, there’s no doubt he could get a move to a European side soon.
However, despite his fair quality, it still doesn’t seem enough for top clubs like Manchester United to go after him.
