Vasco da Gama defender Dede has confirmed an offer has arrived from Cruzeiro.

The Brazil international has been linked with AC Milan and Liverpool in recent weeks.

"There are so many rumors about my future, but so far the one concrete offer came officially from Cruzeiro. Yet now I do not know yet whether I will leave or not, we'll see.

"Certainly it is inevitable that these offers will have an impact on my performance, but in any case, I will always say thanks to the fans of Vasco who are close to me."
