We need our own Thiago Silva and this boy, they say is very good… 
ST. GALLEN, February 29, 2012 – He had already seen him in action in the Brazilian championship. And he hoped to study him again yesterday in the friendly against Bosnia. Mano Menezes, however, has “betrayed” the expectations of Fabio Paratici. Dedè, who came to the team a day after because a game in the tournament of Rio, remained on the bench throughout the game. But the project does not change. The defender of the Vasco da Gama is one of the objectives of the next Juve recruitment campaign

Fine feet. Dedè is a giant . Unbeatable in the air, thanks to his height (193 centimeters) and his physical weight (87 kg). But to this extraordinary athletic power sum South American feet, not coincidentally began his career as a regista in midfield. In short, the ideal alternative to two very physical centrals like Barzagli and Bonucci. The negotiations started a couple of months ago. Paratici, during his last trip to Rio de Janeiro, met with both the player and with Roberto Dinamite, president of Vasco. Not only. Juventus sporting director has come full circle with a blitz in Porto Alegre, where it operates the agency that purchased last summer, a large proportion of the player’s card. 

Iron Arm. Is this agency is the first ally of Juventus in an effort to develop and close the transaction seen that is not easily , however, Vasco deemed Dedè unsellable. At least until the Rio team will go on in Copa Libertadores. There is a lot of work on the cost of the player’s card. The current rating is around fifteen million euros but Juventus took into account spending an amount less and does not intend to go beyond the ten million. A decisive role will have the defender. Dedè, born in ’88, still is not out in the open because it is very close to Vasco and because he just got a raise of wage. But the temptation to compete with La Liga or Serie A is strong. 

The other objective. That of the Paratici in Switzerland, however, was not a fruitless journey. The Juventus sporting director have got to follow another pair of Bianconeri goals. Beginning with the striker Leandro Damiao. The attacker of International Porto Alegre started as owner but has not played a great game against Bosnia. Eating a sensational goal. But interest remains. As is liked Fernandinho from the Shakhtar Donetsk , who yesterday remained in camp for the entire ninety minutes. A midfielder of quality that the Juventus is following a year already. A talent that considers Pirlo his myth. So much is enough, in Juventus key , not to lose sight of him. The problem is that Lucescu considers him an untouchable and that take him away from Ukraine would need at least twenty million. A problem.
