Inter and Milan to battle for Ganso

Brazilian international midfielder Ganso is attracting the interest of both Milan clubs, who will battle for his signature in the summer.

• Inter Blog: Down but not out

Ganso, 21, currently plays for Brazilian club Santos and has won rave reviews for his performances. He has a release clause in his contract reported to be 50 million euros, but Santos are believed to be ready to listen to offers in the region of 20 million euros in the summer.

Inter director Marco Branca claimed that the club were looking at the midfielder, but played down talk of an imminent move.

"Ganso is a midfielder that we are talking about for the future, and not for January," he said.

And that prompted AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani to also confirm his interest in the player.

"Leonardo [Inter coach] likes Ganso? I never went to Brazil for a holiday... his [Ganso's] clause? This is very negotiable," Galliani told Il Corriere dello Sport.

One of the player's representatives revealed that Milan were leading the chase for his client and claimed that they were close to agreeing a deal.

"Milan are in advantage now in terms of Ganso's preferences. The deal could happen already by the start of next season," he said.

Ganso is currently contracted to Santos until 2014, but a knee injury has stalled talks over an improved deal and could also hinder any move in January.

"I am injured, but still a big European club wants me, the club world champion team [Inter] wants to count on me," Ganso was quoted as saying on Calciomercato.com last week. "But Santos don't want to value me."
