Emerson advises Juve in Brazil

Former Juventus man Emerson urges the Bianconeri to make a bid for Dedè and Lucas Moura.

“I founded a football school in Pelotas and would like Juventus to get involved,” the ex-midfielder told Tuttosport.

“There are many talents in Brazil, but it is also necessary to help form them in mental and physical terms so they can be ready for the impact with Europe.”

Juve have been heavily linked with 23-year-old Vasco da Gama defender Dedè, who this weekend pledged his future to the club until 2014.

“Dedè is an excellent defender and has impressed me with his authority on the field. Fiorentina’s Romulo can also become a top level player,” continued Emerson.

“But my favourite is Lucas Moura of Sao Paolo, a 19-year-old who I consider to be one of the best midfielders in the world, but he is very expensive.

“As for Inter, if they sign Juan then it will be a real bargain, as he’s excellent.”
