Young Santos forward reveals his dream to play for Manchester United

Young Santos forward Yefferson Soteldo has revealed his ultimate career goal is to play for Manchester United.

Soteldo, a Venezuelan international, is a small, tricky left winger who has been impressing for his Brazilian side since joining last January.

And he has huge ambitions for a move to England and to play at Old Trafford in the future, despite enjoying his time in Brazil.

“I’m happy at Santos, I’m very happy that they say that I am one of the idols here, for me I’m not,” he said, as quoted by  Manchester Evening News. 

“[My wish] is to be able to play for Manchester United, but today Santos are in my head 100%.”

The 22-year-old is one of the more talented players in the Brazilian Série A, but there is nothing to suggest he is a player worth considering for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Many talented South American stars express their desire to play for United one day, but few actually realise their dream.

The lure of United may have declined to some extent due to the lack of success since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, but the club is still one of the greatest sporting institutions across the world.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer does need to target a right-winger and Jadon Sancho has reportedly been identified as the leading target. 

Sancho is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund and is the dream signing for many United fans this summer.
