Dede’s profile aged 30 in 2018

Dede’s career history until 2018

Dede is a rock at the back, hes fast, strong, a threat in the air and an all round great centre back. His great attributes could fit into any team and they helped him earn 66 caps in seven years for the great Brazil. Although his price tag is out of reach of most top division clubs, if you’ve got the money and in need of a defender he’s well worth the buy.

Best buy rating: 8/10

While his stats aren’t quite as good as Papadopoulos’, the great average rating and spare £22 million make this guy look like a great buy. Nice find, Karl


Actually i think he is better than papadopoulos in term of Ariel playing and concentration which are very important for a CB. He also has speed which helps him plays man- marking effectively.


i see Papadopoulos as very similar to the role mascherano plays at barcelona…can play at centre back or defensive mid…has similar stats too…

Dede is a great player…signed him as a replacement for vidic on my man u save…very consistent and rarely beaten

I bought him in the January transfer period with Real Madrid as a replacement for Carvalho while looking for a young cheap player in the transfer market and I came across this lad whose contract with his club Vasco was about to end in two years and I bought him for €11i million and he impressed me so much that I decided to sell Pepe for €28 million to Arsenal and use him permanently in the starting 11 while Varane became kinda more as a replacement for Carvalho eventhough I kept Carvalho by extending his contract for another year while… Read more »

Varane is for me still too young to be given a permanent starting 11 and he still has to learn a lot because in my save he’s 21 while Dede is 25. I use at the centre back Raul Albiol (28) who is quite similar to Mats Hummels mentally but also in terms of defending eventhough I rate Albiol better than Hummels atm because of experience and defenders are usually at their best between 27 – 32 so I keep Albiol for at least 2 years and beside Albiol I have Dedé who is playing along his side which by… Read more »
