Ganso: Not happy at Santos
Brazilian starlet Ganso will not play for Santos again, according to the man who owns more than half of his economic rights.
Delcir Sonda owns DIS, the group which holds 55 per cent of Ganso's market value, and he has revealed that the midfielder is unhappy with life at the club.
However, despite having most of Europe's top clubs on his trail - a move to Brazilian club Internacional is reportedly the most likely option as he does not want to risk his place in the national squad ahead of the 2014 World Cup finals.
"This is definitive, Ganso won't play for Santos anymore. And yes, he may join Internacional," he told Radio Estadao ESPN
"I am negotiating with Santos to buy his full rights, Ganso is annoyed at the club, he thinks they forgot him.
"He wants to leave Santos but wants to remain in Brazil for another year."
Santos' manager Muricy Ramalho told Lancenet: "You'll never want to lose Ganso, but he has to decide where he wants to play.
"We want him to have a good performance in the Olympics and that he returns to us."
Internacional's football director Luciano Davi talked to 'Zero Hora' and insisted that they have not talk about Ganso.
"Ganso has not been offered [to Internacional]."
He also insisted that Oscar's situation remained the same, despite continued speculation he could be set for Tottenham.
"We won't sell Oscar, there were enquiries but there are no negotiations," he insisted.
