Manchester United are challenging Liverpool for want-away Vasco da Gama defender Dede. The Mirror says Vasco have confirmed this week he WILL be sold in the summer.

Dede - full name Anderson Vital da Silva - fits the Liverpool profile perfectly, given he is a young international who promises much for the future.

And with boss Brendan Rodgers keen to land at least TWO centre-halves in the summer, they will commit big money to fighting off champions-elect United.

 Will we see Dede in England next season? Is he Premier League class? Give us your shout below...
