21-year old Paulo Henrique Ganso is reported to have rejected offers from his current Brazilian club  Santos of a new contract. 

The attacking midfielder told Brazilian reporters:

“I know what Santos has offered me through my representatives but I did not consider it suitable for me as a proposal.

"So I ended up not accepting. Also, I do have the right to say no." 

The prodigious Brazilian international is deemed as one of the countries best young prospects, stimulating interest in various prolific premiership teams. 

A key battle for the player which is believed to be running from the summer is being played out between Manchester rivals Manchester United and Manchester City.  

Speculation on this deal suggested that in August Sir Alex Ferguson had taken the lead in the battle to bring the player to Old Trafford, when United sold Ricardo Possebon to Santos. 

However, Santos President Luis Alvaro De Oliveira Ribeiro has tried to reject any news of a move to Manchester United or any other Premiership club for the Santos wondered explaining during a club conference:

“My thoughts are the same as the player's, I am thinking of Paulo Henrique's [Ganso] career.

“I am going to meet with the player to talk so our plans can coincide with each other. Ganso hasn't seen the offer and I will make a point of presenting it to him."
