Rio de Janeiro: Manchester City is reportedly preparing a 20 million euro offer for highly rated Brazilian centreback Dede.

Representatives of the reigning English Premier League champions will visit Rio this week to make an official offer to Dede`s club Vasco de Gama, sources reported Saturday.

It is understood City is keen to benefit from Vasco`s precarious financial position. The Brazilian club has struggled to pay player salaries this season and has a reported debt of USD185 million.
