Dede on Man Utd rumours: People compare me with Ferdinand

Vasco da Gama defender Dede is happy with speculation linking him with Manchester United and Juventus. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has had Dede scouted in recent weeks.

He told Globoesporte. "I was with Brazil and a reporter came to ask me if I would go to Juventus.

"I said I like the team, they are a great European club, but now my focus is totally on Vasco [da Gama]. Speculation doesn't bother me. I'm happy with some of the comparisons.

"They compared me with Rio Ferdinand, who is a great centre-back, but I am totally focused on Vasco."
