Manchester United target Ganso has denied he has sold a percentage of his contract to an investment group, without the permission of Santos.
It was claimed that investors DIS group had purchased 10 percent of the Brazilian midfielder's rights; something the 22-year-old is unable to do without the consent of his employers.
However, Ganso has since backtracked on these reports, and suggests a deal is far from done, and Santos are well aware of any discussions taking place.
"The sale has still not been completed. It is something which still needs to be agreed with Santos, it was not really a sale, more a pre-agreement," he told Globoesporte.
"But now I need to sit down with Santos to define everything."
Manchester United, meanwhile, are reported to hold a long-term admiration of Ganso, who has been frequently linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Speculation that Sir Alex Ferguson could launch a move for the Brazil international has increased in recent weeks after Darren Fletcher's sabbatical and injury to Anderson left the United boss short of midfield options.
