thumbnail Hello,

The young midfielder is only focused on hitting top form again as he recovers from a thigh problem and says he will pen a contract extension in the next few months

Santos playmaker Ganso has said he is not paying attention to reports about a move to Europe, and is hoping to sign a new deal in the near future.

The Brazil international has been associated with a move away from Santos in recent months, with AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain thought to be amongst the clubs interested in the 22-year-old.

Ganso said he is not thinking about leaving Santos and even said that contract talks are in the pipeline with the Brazil outfit.

"I thought it was best to leave that subject to a later date," he told Globoesporte. "I am only focused on playing well again at Santos. That is the only thing I am thinking about.

"The club's president talked to me [about a new contract], but I told him it was not the best time, because Santos are preparing for the Club World Cup, so we thought it was best to leave it for January."

The midfielder, who is currently recovering from a thigh injury, added his sole worry is to regain full fitness in time for the global club competition in Japan in December.

"I want to get prepared, without any hurry, to be fully fit for the Club World Cup, since Santos are far away from the top of the table in the league," he affirmed.

"That is my biggest motivation right now."
