Venezuela international Yeferson Soteldo has told The Original Drink Team YouTube channel that he wants to leave Santos later this year.

The 22-year-old has been sensational with the Brazilians and Santos has put a £32m price tag on the explosive winger.

“I want to finish this season at Santos, win the Libertadores and whatever is possible and then take another step,” the 22-year-old said.

“I want to go to Europe, but not to go and come back. I want to go and pursue my career with greater success.”

Back in March, Santos president Jose Carlos Peres admitted that Everton had contacted them, as well as a host of LaLiga clubs.

“Soteldo is a young player who has sensational skills. He is a player who decides the games.

“All the big teams in Brazil asked me, Premier League teams like Everton want him, and he has many requests from Spain.”

Soteldo has publicly admitted on several occasions that he wants to go to Manchester United like his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo.
