Manchester United are planning a bid to sign highly rated Santos midfielder Ganso as Sir Alex Ferguson continues to chase the best up and coming talent to help in his plans to build a new generation of talent at Old Trafford. The Old Trafford boss is looking to freshen up a squad that has more than it’s fair share of ageing legs and is preparing a summer swoop for the Brazilian international.

The 21 year old playmaker is reportedly unhappy at Santos after the Sao Paulo club reneged on an improved contract offer they had promised the youngster and this has led to a flurry of interest in the rangy midfielder and Ferguson is keen to beat prospective suitors to the signing of a player who has a great deal of potential.

Santos have slapped £25m valuation on Ganso following an unsuccessful bid from French side Lyon and the starlet dubbed the ‘Brazilian Zidane’ seems likely to leave his club after his angry outburst following his contract dispute.

Having already brought in the likes of Anders Lindegaard, Javier Hernandez and Chris Smalling, players signed to take over the club’s old guard, a move for Ganso would appear to be a very wise addition to the Brazilian contingent already at the club.
