Dede to replace Thiago at Milan?

While Milan are in negotiations with PSG to sell Thiago Silva, it’s reported his replacement will be Vasco da Gama’s Dedé. “There’s no offer yet,” said his agent.

Vice-President Adriano Galliani is in Paris to discuss Thiago Silva’s potential €47m transfer and many sources suggest Dedé is to be his heir rather than Torino’s Angelo Ogbonna.

“At the moment there are no direct talks with Milan directors,” agent Giuliano Aranda told Calciomercato.it.

“There has been a lot of talk in the newspapers, but there’s no offer yet. It might be that the Rossoneri are waiting to sell Thiago Silva before making their intentions clear.

“As for Barcelona, the same issue applies, as there has been a lot of noise in the papers because they are looking for a defender.

“We have had contacts with English clubs, but not with the Rossoneri or Catalans.”

It is believed Manchester United are particularly interested in 23-year-old Brazilian international Dedé.
