AC Milan appear to be on the brink of signing Brazilian Ganso after talks began between the Italian giants and the players club Santos, reports ESPN soccernet.

The playmaker is highly tipped for the top and has been linked with a host of European sides this year.

Chelsea were rumoured to be interested, but Milan, who brought through Kaka after signing him from Sao Paulo and Alexandre Pato, who is known as the 'duck', look close to sealing the deal for the player known as the 'Goose'.

"My future is in Italy. Milan or Inter? I do not know yet," Ganso said last week.


"I feel I could be a useful asset for either side but all I can say right now is my future is in Italy.

"I have many friends in Italy. I often speak with Robinho and Thiago Silva who would like to see me at AC Milan. I have also spoken to [Inter coach] Leonardo. He praises me and likes the way I play but I do not know where I will be playing next season."

Ganso's teammate Neymar is also up for grabs this summer, but his future is also unknown with Chelsea, Barcelona and Manchester United all following his progress after his two-goal salvo against Scotland for the Brazil national side.

As well as Neymar, Chelsea are also tracking Javier Pastore and Sergio Aguero as they look to bolster their attacking line-up.
