Santos are remaining firm in their stance over the proposed sale of Manchester United Paulo Henrique Ganso, claiming the Brazil international will remain with the club.
"Ganso isn't leaving Santos," president Luis Alvaro Ribeiro told Terra Brasil.
"I had a conversation with him and he said he was committed and I thanked him and praised his behaviour.
"He still has time to move in the future."
This, however, would appear to contradict the comments of Ganso's agent Mario Miele, who on Tuesday suggested United, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain were chasing his client, and the latter set to met his buyout clause.
"On Ganso it's PSG, then Milan and Man Utd," Miele told calciomercatonews.com. "My impression is PSG will soon meet the buy-out clause."
The 21-year-old midfielder has reportedly been identified by Sir Alex Ferguson as a potential replacement for Paul Scholes, after the Old Trafford legend lowered the curtain on his illustrious United career.
Luka Modric and Samir Nasri have also been touted as possible Scholes successors, while Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder is the favourite to join United.
