Denilson reveals English offers

Former World Cup winner Denilson has revealed he has offers from England.

The 31-year-old, who was once the most expensive player in the world when Real Betis paid a then-record £21.5million to sign him from Sao Paulo in 1998, is targeting a return to Europe in a bid to resurrect his career.

"Football does not end with Palmeiras," he told gazetasportiva.net. "I am going to continue playing. The decision was not mine, but the club's.

"Palmeiras have the right to do what they did and I am not in pain or anything like that. I have a clean conscience as I did my job and I would return to the side if I have the chance.

"I want to play in Europe, but I am not in a rush.

"I have received proposals from England, Greece, Turkey and Germany. I am studying them.

"I understand that this is the time to return to European football, but if I am not convinced by any offer I hope to continue in Brazil, where there are also clubs interested in me."
