Vasco 'awaiting Milan Dede offer'

Dedè’s agent has confirmed “Milan would be an honour for him, but Vasco da Gama are still waiting for their offer.”

The Brazilian is attracting interest from numerous top European clubs, including Juventus, Liverpool, Valencia, Manchester United and Benfica.

“Vasco are awaiting Milan’s offer,” agent Giuliano Aranda told TMW this evening.

“I believe there has been contact between the clubs and the Rossoneri’s interest in Dedè is concrete, but at the moment they have not spoken to me directly. Milan need to reach an agreement with Vasco before negotiating with us.”

It is reported the Brazilian club has set a €12m price-tag on the 24-year-old defender.

“Many European clubs are tracking him and I can also reveal there have been talks with some Russian clubs.

“The latest contact with Valencia was six months ago, while Liverpool are on the same level as Milan – that is there is interest from the Reds, but no talks between me and the English club.”

The representative was asked whether Dedè would have a preference between Italy, Spain, England and Russia.

“At the moment Dedè is not thinking about a transfer. He is happy in Brazil and giving his all to earn a call-up for the Confederations Cup.

“Milan are certainly a fantastic club and among the top sides in the world, so playing with the Rossoneri jersey would be an honour for the lad.”
