Manchester United look to have re-entered the race to sign Santos starlet Ganso, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

United had been linked with the 21-year-old, but rife speculation surrounding the potential signing of Wesley Sneijder put any possibility of Ganso to the back burner.

However, with rumours circulating that the Red Devils have been put off by Sneijder's wage demands, rumoured to be as high at £250,000 a week, Sir Alex Ferguson could turn to the player known as "the new Kaka".


It's believed that United are now in pole position to bring the Brazilian playmaker to Old Trafford, despite Ganso's preference to join Robinho, Alexandre Pato, and Tiago Silva at AC Milan.

It's understood that Ganso told Silva that the only club he would leave Santos for is Milan, even if it means waiting.

However, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has said that they could yet sign a non-European based player, but it won't be Ganso.

"Milan does have a vacant place for a non-European player but it's not Ganso," said Galliani.

It's also understood that Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be interested in the £25 million rated midfielder. The cash flush, Qatari backed French side are eager to make a splash with their newfound riches and could rival Manchester United for Ganso's signature.

However, a place for Ganso at PSG could be passing as Sky Sports News reported Thursday morning that the club's sporting director Leonardo is meeting with Adel Taarabt to finalise personal terms.

PSG and Queens Park Rangers haven't yet agreed a fee as QPR reportedly rejected the latest bid of £13.5, but it's believed they will meet the valuation of £15 million once personal terms are agreed.
