Ganso certain of move to Milan
Brazilian midfielder Ganso has been attracting the attention of Europe's elite, and now claims that he is certain to be moving to the San Siro to play for Milan or Inter in the summer.
Ganso, 21, has been linked with a host of Premier League teams, but says that he is ready to move to Italy to take the next step in his career.
"Next season I will play in Milan," the Santos star told Corriere dello Sport. "Leonardo often calls me because he wants me to go to Inter Milan. Leo is a wonderful person. He has been a great player and I wish him much success as a coach.
"I respect him very much personally. Inter Milan are a great club and everyone would to play there. They have a fantastic team and their latest victories are the proof of that."
However, Ganso also claimed that Inter's city rivals had been in contact and would be happy to play for Serie A's league leaders as well.
"My agent also told me of interest from AC Milan, which is a great club too,'' he added. ''I'm ready for Italy, I'm ready for this challenge. Winning titles with Santos and playing in the Brazilian national team have strengthened me as a footballer."
Ganso claims Santos have put a €50million price tag on his head, but thinks that it will not provide a stumbling block to his future move.
He added: "The valuation of €50million made by Santos is unrealistic in the market but I'll leave the matter in the hands of my agents who know how to solve the problem with the president of Santos.
"My greatest dream is to win the Libertadores Cup this season with Santos and then move to a top European club, perhaps in a major Italian team. If I have the opportunity to play in a big club, I won't disappoint."
