“We said yes” Brentford accept to sign player after He want to join club

Monaco defender Vanderson has revealed he was ready to join Brentford earlier in his career, before deciding the Ligue 1 side were better for his prospects.

The 22-year-old has been speaking to L’Equipe regarding his career so far, which started in Brazil and saw him move to Ligue 1 in January 2022.

The youngster started his career with Gremio and was a regular there before a surprise relegation at the Brazilian club forced him to look elsewhere.

He had suitors across Europe, as is usually the case for highly rated Brazilian youngsters, with several Premier League sides showing an interest in him.

One of those were Brentford, who have become adept at scooping up talent and developing it themselves over the last few years.

Vanderson excited by Barcelona and Manchester United transfer interest| All FootballThat has certainly been the case since Thomas Frank’s arrival, with him helping to develop a long list of players in undoubted Premier League quality.

Vanderson could have been a part of that ever-expanding list, providing competition to Aaron Hickey and Mads Roerslev in the right-back spot.

It seems he was keen on the move too, before ultimately deciding that he fancied a move to Monaco over Brentford.

“After the relegation of Grêmio (his training club) to Serie B, I knew I was going to leave,” he said.

“The club and my parents spoke with Brentford. We said yes, but Monaco intervened with a more interesting, more ambitious project, for me and for Grêmio too.

“So, we opted for ASM, a club where young people can express themselves.”
