Shakhtar Donetsk winger Tete has said that he dreams of playing for the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United or Barcelona later in his career.
The 20-year-old remains in the early stages of his career, but he has already shown promising talent. Indeed, he scored one goal and assisted another in the 3-2 win over Real Madrid last month.
Tete is continuing to progress since making the ambitious move to Europe from his native Brazil last summer. The attacker moved to Ukraine from Gremio’s Under-20’s side.
In that time, he has netted 14 goals and laid on 12 others in 57 games for Shakhtar but speaking to DAZN (via Sport Witness), Tete outlined how he has further lofty ambitions.
“I always want to make bigger leaps. It’s normal to dream from a young age to play for big teams and with me it’s no different,” the winger said.
“I always dream of playing for Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona, as I mentioned. But the special affection I have is for Barcelona.
“It’s a team that I’ve always followed since I was little, since I was a child. I used to get Barcelona shirts, (Lionel) Messi shirts.
“So that passion grew every day and the affection I really have is for Barcelona.”
Tete’s form since moving to Europe earned him a call-up to Brazil’s Under-20’s team in January. He has made seven appearances on the international stage.
Meanwhile, the winger’s one goal and four assists this season have helped Shakhtar garner four points from their opening three Champions League group stage games.
What’s more, two of those assists have come in the Ukrainian top flight, with Shakhtar unbeaten after nine matches.
South American giants eye Cavani move
Meanwhile, reports have claimed that Boca Juniors are eyeing a move for Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan netted his first United goal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side last weekend in the win over Everton.
And while he has the option of an extra year in his Red Devils contract, Argentinian side Boca are reportedly targeting a future move.
