Ganso To Also Sign New Contract?

Recommended Posts


Santos president Luis Alvaro de Oliveria believes Paulo Henrique Ganso should of accepted a new deal proposed to him last year, but will try to hold talks with the playmaker again this coming January.

In October last year, the Libertadores champions offered the twenty two year old a new improved contract that would see the midfielders earnings increase through sponsorship deals.

In an interview with Radio Bandeirantes, Luis Alvardo said, ''unfortunately, their (Ganso’s) attorneys closed the door on the deal. This was unfortunate because Paul Henrique lost out on a lot of money.’’

However the president still believes that the club can reach an agreement with Ganso and will hold talks with his representatives in January next year.

''After the World Club Cup, with calmness and tranquility, I will sit down with him to find a solution that interests him, that makes him happy and that will turn him in to an idol world wide.''

They are going in, if they can keep him they going to be in the World Club Championship every year.

If they keep him until around 24 they can make even more money of him, sick business on there part, but I wanna be seeing these players in Europe (no imperialist)

The 22-year-old is rated as one of the hottest properties in South America having broken into the Santos first-team in 2008, and established himself as a strong, agile and technical playmaker.

He has since been watched by clubs from all over Europe, including Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, while AC Milan have had two separate bids rejected recent in recent years, as Santos battle to keep hold of the pass-master.

However, their grip on Ganso appears to be loosening, after he snubbed the club's latest contract offer over the weekend, clearing the way for a move away from Brazil.

Ganso is said to have turned down a three-year extension to his current terms that would boost his wages to £70,000-a-week, with the star insisting the club need to offer closer to £150,000-a-week if they wish to keep him.

Santos are unlikely to be able to match his demands, as they are already paying one huge salary - that of superstar forward Neymar - which they needed help from sponsors to be able to fund.

That clears the way for Ganso to finally get his dream move to Europe, with United and the Blues leading the race.

Both clubs are chasing a big name central midfielder this summer, but agreeing a fee with Santos will be tricky, especially as they've always maintained he will only be sold for his buyout fee, which currently sits at £50 million.

United could bridge the gap by sending flop Anderson the other way on loan, while Chelsea are willing to offer Santos a partnership deal, that would see the two sides exchange coaching methods.

Ganso is currently contracted to Santos until 2015.
