Dedé admits there is a chance he could leave Vasco da Gama
Vasco da Gama defender Dedé has admitted that he could leave the club in the near future but reassures supporters that he will give his best while still at the São Januário.
Dedé, 24, has been heavily linked with a move to Fifa Club World Cup winners Corinthians in the past couple of weeks, but the star, who has a contract until 2015 with Vasco, remains committed to his current employers.
“I'll work focused on Vasco, giving the maximum in each workout and not think about the proposals that can happen inside or outside Brazil,” he told Globo Esporte.
“If I see something good for myself and for Vasco, then let's talk. If I stay here, I'll do my best.”
While the Vasco board are keen to keep the player at the club, they know that he is their most valuable asset and a sale would help ease the financial troubles they currently face.
“I've heard speculation about Corinthians that grew. Nobody talked to me, but I saw it on the internet. Other offers I did not know.”
Regardless of transfer speculation, Dedé’s main priority is getting fit after suffering a broken leg towards the end of last season.
“I still have some difficulty in the leg because I was out for a long time. It's a matter of trust. It will depend on my performance in training, but if I had a game closer I think could participate, yes.”
