Everton Ribeiro knows nothing about any offers and is focussed on the Libertadores
Voted the best player of the 2013 Campeonato Brasileiro, the Cruzeiro midfielder has caught the attention of many European clubs.
Despite the fact that Everton Ribeiro’s holidays are still not over, the 24-year-old insists that he is already thinking about this year’s Copa Libertadores. The midfielder was the highlight of Cruzeiro’s successful 2013 title campaign and has been drawing the attention of many foreign clubs, including Manchester United.
"I’m on vacation – totally switched off. I don’t know anything. When I return, if something happens then I will know about it. I had a very good year and am now focused to the Libertadores. On 6 January I will go back to Belo Horizonte," said the player in an interview with Radio Itatiaia.
Asked if he expected to win the championship with Cruzeiro and be voted best player of the Brasileirão last season, the midfielder admitted that the year was beyond his initial expectations.
"It was a very good year. It was hard work but it was worth the effort. With the squad that we were building I hoped that we would have a great year, but it was better than I expected."
