Ganso sparks Milan derby

Santos' Brazil international starlet Paulo Henrique Ganso has set off a bidding war between Milan and Inter.

The 21-year-old playmaker is widely regarded as the most creative talent of his generation and wants a move to Europe.

Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ganso said: "Yes, Robinho has told me something [about Milan], but so have Pato and Thiago Silva.

"At times we joke about it. They tell me that Milan is a fantastic club, with great infrastructure, that Italian football is quite strong and the marking is tight.

"There are always inquiries in the transfer market. Anyway up until now a concrete offer has yet to arrive. If I go to Europe it's to play for a big club. I would have to think a lot before going to a medium-sized one."

Asked about his frequent contact with Inter boss Leonardo, he said: "We are effectively in touch. He gives me advice and suggestions about how to position myself on the pitch. He says that I have to play more advanced in front of goal.

"Sure, he always says that he wants me at Inter, but he isn't forcing me into a move. I don't know when it will happen. It's my idea to play in Europe, but it will happen at the right moment," he concluded.
