Ribeiro has been strongly linked with Manchester United in the past 12-months, whilst Inter Milan were understood to be keen on Nilton.

Director of football Alexandre Mattos also confirmed that Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg failed with a bid for Dede.

Mattos told Esporte Interativo: "We had a €16 million offer from Zenit for Dede and an investment fund offer for Everton Ribeiro but we turned both of them down. That was about two or three months ago."

He added: "Nilton's agent came to us, not Inter Milan, but rather agents linked not only to Inter but also to a club in Spain and another one in Italy.

"And it was not only Nilton who was sounded out, but also Lucas Silva, Everton Ribeiro, Ricardo Goulart and Mayke. This is common, but there are no official offers."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

F365's Top Ten Unheralded Players Of The Season

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
