thumbnail Hello,

The imposing defender is targeting a clean sweep of league medals when he joins up with his new team-mates and hopes it will also help him stake a claim for the Brazil team

Dante has revealed that his desire to win titles was behind his decision to join Bayern Munich from Borussia Monchengladbach, and he intends on doing so at the Allianz Arena.

The 28-year-old Brazilian played a key role in an impressive campaign for the Foals, who surprisingly achieved Champions League qualification by finishing fourth in the Bundesliga.

His form earned him a move to the Bavarians, and despite having to compete with the likes of Jerome Boateng, Holger Badstuber and Daniel Van Buyten for a starting spot at Bayern, he feels he can achieve great things at the club.

"I have a contract until 2016 and would prefer to win the Bundesliga four times," Dante told Kicker.

"I have no problem with pressure. In fact, I love it. I can promise one thing: I will work hard for my chance every day, and then the rest is up to the coach.

"I would also like to finish my career in Germany. My family feels very comfortable."

Dante also expressed his hope that regular playing time at one of Europe's biggest clubs could see him win his first international cap and break into the Brazil team ahead of the World Cup.

"Of course I hope I can play for the Selecao thanks to this move. That remains my dream, just like the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

"I think playing for Bayern places me more in the focus."
