Cruzeiro defender Dede insists he has heard nothing of reported offers from big clubs in Europe.

Reports suggest that Manchester United and Real Madrid have both tabled bids for the 25-year old Brazilian but the player himself is unaware of anything official landing in the Cruzeiro inbox.

"Imagine going to Real Madrid now?" Dede told O Tempo. "I don't know, I think I haven't received anything.

"I'll ask director of football Alexandre Mattos. I have not received anything lately, but I'll try to find out."
