Palmeiras and Flamengo interested in defender Dedé
Brazilian defender Dedé, who was the idol of Flamengo’s rivals Vasco, has a contract with Cruzeiro only until April of next year and may sign a pre-contract with any interested party.
According to the information from Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola, Flamengo and Palmeiras are trying to convince the representatives of the defender to leave Cruzeiro, but Dedé resists, with the justification that he had the full support of his club for the last two years, when he has been recovering from surgery. About the permanence of Fernandinho, which seemed simple, has became complicated. It’s Grêmio coach Renato Gaúcho who wants to count on the striker for next season. Fernandinho is on loan from Grêmio until December. What should be confirmed in the coming days is the stay of Réver. The defender, who belongs to Internacional, is out of the plans of the Porto Alegre side because of his high salary. While planning a series of arrivals, Flamengo already have some departures set for the end of the year. Defender Juan, one of the greatest idols of the fans, and striker Emerson Sheik will not have their contracts renewed at the end of the season. The same goes for left-back Chiquinho, who may be heading to Japanese football.
