Ganso set for Santos stay

The creative playmaker is one of the hottest prospects in Brazilian football, and has been linked with a move to either AC Milan or city rivals Inter, for whom he could play under fellow countryman Leonardo.

“Santos will always be in my heart. I’m going to stay here for two more years. “Leonardo? I often speak with him. He gives me various tips that help me improve my work on and off the pitch. But that does not mean I go to Inter.

“[However], it’s logical that I would like to play for some big club in Europe, but for now, I do not want to force the situation and I want to let things continue as they are.”
