Oribe Peralta hints at Europe move

Mexican striker Oribe Peralta has admitted that he wouldn’t mind leaving his native country in favour of a move to Europe.

The 28-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in North America despite spending his entire career in Mexico.

Peralta has been linked with a move to Europe following the impressive showing for El Tri at the 2012 Olympics, and he admits he is ready for a new challenge.

“I would like to try some other football, it would be a nice challenge,” Peralta said in an exclusive interview with Marca.

“But, I have a family that is behind me and I need a livelihood. If a team match my contract, I am going anywhere.”

Peralta reveals that he is a big fan of Real Madrid, but also likes English Premier League.

“If I were to go to Europe, I would like to play for Madrid, for sure. I would also like to play in the Premiership, I find it a very quick and competitive league.”

Oribe Peralta has been in fine form over the last year and a half, scoring 33 goals in 51 league appearances for Santos Laguna.

He shone at the 2012 Summer Games, where he scored 4 goals in 6 matches for El Tri, netting a brace in the 2-1 win over Brazil in the tournament final.
