|Assunto:||Would like (for) you to|
<<[...] the form of this use is unusual and runs against the established pattern>>
As per Webster's. (I took the liberty of underscoring the preposition for as shown below):
4 : to wish to have : WANT <do not like anybody to touch my things --Marjorie Osterman> -- often used with a conditional auxiliary <would like a drink> <would like you to do it> <would like it returned soon> <isn't as widely circulated as we would like for it to be --E.B.Atwood> <would like for you to look this over>
I had the impression Webster's gave these verbal illustrations as Standard English.
I Googled 295,000 examples of it with for, some or most of which may have originated from native speakers of English.
