Leo to deliver Ganso to Inter

Leonardo will look to work the same magic as he did at Milan in the Brazilian transfer market by luring Ganso to Inter, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

It's no secret that Leonardo played a major role in the signings of Kaka, Thiago Silva and Alexandre Pato during his time at Milanello.

La Gazzetta understands Inter are very keen to use Leonardo's know-how as well as his contacts in Brazil to uncover the best of the country's up and coming talent.

Santos' 21-year-old playmaker Ganso is widely regarded as one of the world's most exciting prospects and had been called up to represent Brazil before a serious knee injury hampered his progress.

However, he is expected to return to action in the spring and then leave for Europe in the summer.

Reports suggest Leonardo is already working towards signing Ganso, although he has already experienced competition from Real Madrid.

This is where Massimo Moratti's relationship with Jose Mourinho would supposedly come into play, as Inter apparently wouldn't block Real Madrid's efforts to sign Neymar as long as they backed off Ganso.
