But Bracks has bullishly warned that Santos has a "strong contract" with the Brazilian club.
“The whole world wants Andrey. But he's from Vasco, he has a contract with us, a strong contract," Bracks told ESPN.
“He should go to a South American Under-20 championships [for Brazil], and I can't guarantee what will happen to him. [I hope he] stays with us, this year, in this Serie A project of ours, but he is an athlete who, on the market shelf, is being very targeted."
