Dede is widely regarded as one of the best defenders in Brazil and is favourite among Vasco supporters.

But with a host of European clubs including Liverpool, Manchester United, AC Milan, Juventus all chasing Dede, Autuori believes the club can no longer hold onto the 24-year-old.

"I know Dedé is leaving, we talked about this since when I was negotiating with the club, I won't make up stories as that only complicates things,” Autuori said.

And the club’s director Cristiano Koehler backed up his manager’s comments, all but confirming Dede will soon no longer be a Vasco player recently to Rádio Globo.

"We have to work with a clear thinking in order not to mislead Vasco fans, Dedé will leave one day.” Koehler said.
