Santos star Ganso looks set to follow team-mate Neymar by signing a new contract at the club, having said he wants to open talks after December's Club World Cup.

32132 - Ganso ready to snub Manchester United

Ganso, 22, has been tipped as one of the game's brightest stars and has been linked with a number of top clubs including AC Milan, Inter and Manchester United. The Brazilian midfielder has a deal that currently runs until 2015, with a reported £50 million buy-out clause installed in it.

However, after claiming that he would stay for the club's centenary year a few months ago, the player now says that he is even willing to extend his deal.

"My desire is to reach an agreement with those at Santos and extend my contract here," he said. "I have told the president I want to talk in January after the Club World Cup."
