Cruzeiro have made the first move to sign Vasco da Gama defender Dede, according to the player himself.
Much-coveted Brazilian defender Dede has revealed that Cruzeiro have made an offer to Vasco da Gama for his services.
The 24-year-old is regarded as one of the best defenders in Brazil, leading to suggestions that the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid are interested in signing the centre-back.
However, it appears that Brazilian outfit Cruzeiro have made the first move for his signature.
He told Lancenet: "It's concrete, there is an offer from Cruzeiro. But I don't know yet if I'll leave Vasco or not."
Dede has won seven caps for his country.
