Ganso Set For Move

By on July 15, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Santos confirm Ganso will leave the club.


Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Man United have been alerted to the news that Santos are prepared to sell highly-rated playmaker Ganso this summer.

Delcir Sonda, who owns 55% of the player, revealed last week that Ganso will not play for Santos again due to concerns over his life at the club. Santos’ vice-president, Odilio Rodrigues, has now confirmed the 22-year-old is keen to leave the club this summer, according to Sky Sports News.

Rodrigues has stated that they wont stand in the players way, but any interested parties will have to meet their valuation for one of South America’s most sought-after talents.

“Ganso doesn’t want to play for Santos anymore. We learned that from the club’s president Luis Alvaro last Thursday.

“Ganso has lost his interest in Santos so we won’t try to keep him anymore.

“However, we won’t give up his buyout fee. Since Delcir Sonda and Ganso are interested (in a move) negotiations are open but the buyout fee has to be paid.”

Rodrigues is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News

This admission comes when Sky Sports News suggest that both Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in the midfielder, while the Mirror claim that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and new Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas are also tracking the starlet, so a transfer scramble between four Premier League heavy-weights could ensue.

However, reports emanating from Brazil suggest the player is likely to join Internacional as he doesn’t want to jeopardise his chances of making the Brazil 2014 World Cup squad.

    Seen some clips of him and he looks like he could be a world beater, love to see him in a Tottenham shirt use the Modric money and get him in…

    He was world class before his injury, but since has’t even looked close to the same player. he’ll prob move (like the article suggests) to Porto Alegre, with Oscar moving to chelsea.

    “due to concerns over his life”.
    Sounds like he’s fallen foul of some cartel or another. If that’s the case best he comes to the premier league to lie low for a bit eh? 😉

    I prefere m’villa to arsenal. Come on gunners, why buy ganso when we have wilshere. It doesn’t make sense. We have talent, what we need in arsenal now is POWER! And m’villa wil definitely offer it. Mr Wenger pls sign m’villa. Gunners 4 life

        Wilshere… Overhyped? Didn’t see the game against Barca where Cesc was anonymous and Wilshere had to deal with Xavi and Iniesta in the middle practically on his own… And he held his ground well… Hopefully he comes back to that same level after his injury.

    I think it will be another tight year in the epl. Chelsea still need one or two new additions to the team/squad. Whether you support the Chelsea or anyone else a lot of these players are not proven world beaters. There prices are way too high

    I really have to laugh at some of the comments I see on these blogs.
    You hardly heard from Chelsea supporters until RA came in and bought them some trophies. Now there are suddenly lots of Man City fans shouting off.
    It’s all very well stock piling players but you can’t play all of them all of the time. Still, they are probably fairly happy warming the bench whilst they look at their bank balances.
