Well, forget Neymar, he has quite recently signed a new long term contract with Santos, keeping him at the club for quite a while longer. Step up Ganso, who is sending all the top European clubs reeling.
Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Barcelona and Inter Milan: All different top European teams, but all with one similarity: All are interested in Brazilian midfield sensation Ganso. Ganso is seen as the future of Brazilian football and has since then become the top footballing prospect in South America.
The 21 year old midfielder has already snapped up 97 appearances for Santos and has put in 24 goals over that period, not bad for a midfielder, not bad at all. The youngster has even already made his Senior Brazil team debut in their match against the United States in a friendly from last year.
He has just recently returned from a 6 month injury layoff, and has only played one game since, but his performances before the injury were already impressive to keep his interest prolonged. Along with that, he boosted his hopes of a big European move with a goal on his return from injury in the Paulista, a Sao Paolo cup.
Before now, the chances that Ganso would leave Santos were zero, but it could be 50 per cent by the end of the season.

Chelsea are rumoured to be at the front of the chase, whilst Inter Milan look second in the race for the talented young midfielder from Ananindeua, Brazil.
