Dede is being watched by Milan this season.
"At the moment Dedè is happy at Cruzeiro, where he has the chance to prove himself in the Copa Libertadores and earn a place in the World Cup squad," agent Giuliano Aranda told tuttomercatoweb.
"I did read the reports. Its true Dedè is liked by Milan, but also tracked by other Italian clubs. The Rossoneri are a great side, despite their recent difficulties.
"I can confirm there has been no direct contact with Milan or other Serie A clubs. I haven't spoken to anybody, even if the interest in Dedè remains.
