Santos goalkeeper Vanderlei has called speculation that he will change Villa Belmiro to rivals Sao Paulo next season.
– Pure speculation. I have nothing to talk about. Nothing happened to me. Our focus is on Santos to try to finish the championship in the best possible way – said Vanderlei after 1-0 defeat to Chapecoense in Paceprime from Brasileirao.
Sao Paulo President Carlos Augusto Barros e Silva and Santos, Jose Carlos Peres, talked about a transfer from Vanderlei to Morumbi in late October.
The Sao Paula team sees Vanderleia, even at age 34, as a player to come in for a constant exchange of goals from Rogerio Ceni's retirement in 2015.

Transfer talks should continue at the end of the Brazilian.
