Cruzeiro and Brazil defender Dedè “is liked by Milan, but also tracked by other Italian clubs,” said his agent.
The 25-year-old centre-back only moved from Vasco da Gama to Cruzeiro less than a year ago, but has already been heavily linked with a Serie A switch this summer.
“At the moment Dedè is happy at Cruzeiro, where he has the chance to prove himself in the Copa Libertadores and earn a place in the World Cup squad,” agent Giuliano Aranda told tuttomercatoweb.
“I did read the reports. It’s true Dedè is liked by Milan, but also tracked by other Italian clubs. The Rossoneri are a great side, despite their recent difficulties.
“I can confirm there has been no direct contact with Milan or other Serie A clubs. I haven’t spoken to anybody, even if the interest in Dedè remains.
“Could he come to Europe over the summer? At the moment he is focused on doing well with Cruzeiro, but I won’t rule anything out.
“Playing in Europe and Italy in the future is one of his objectives. We’ll see how the situation develops over the next few weeks, as I think between April and May we’ll have a clearer idea of any summer transfer activity.”
