Brazil President-elect Jair Bolsonaro's team approached Roberto Castello Branco, a former board member at state-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras), with the possibility of him becoming its new chief executive, two people with knowledge of the matter said on Tuesday.

The sources, which asked for anonymity because they are not authorized to speak on the matter publicly, said Castello Branco initially turned down the idea. Bolsonaro's main advisers did not immediately comment on the matter. (Reporting by Marta Nogueira, Alexandra Alper and Luciano Costa; Writing by Tatiana Bautzer; Editing by Richard Chang)
