Dede: Has revealed that Cruzeiro have made a transfer bid

The 24-year-old, who has seven caps for Brazil, has been the subject of intense speculation about his future over the past 18 months.

A host of top European clubs have been linked with a move for Dede, including Premier League trio Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool, Italian giants AC Milan and Ligue 1 leaders PSG.

A number of Brazilian sides have also been credited with an interest and one of those, Cruzeiro, appear to have stolen a march on their rivals.

Marcelo Oliveira's men reportedly had a €4million (£3.42million) offer for 45% of Dede's rights turned down, with Vasco pushing for at least €5million (£4.23million).

When quizzed once more about his future Dede confirmed Cruzeiro's offer, though he remained coy on any details and whether the deal would actually go through.

"It's concrete, there is an offer from Cruzeiro," he told Lancenet. "But I don't know yet if I'll leave Vasco or not."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
