The next big thing: Ganso

July 13, 2010 — by Sean2

Unless you’ve been following Santos—maybe on the trail of Robinho—you may have so far missed the next great midfield prospect in global footbal: Paulo Henrique aka “Ganso”. He’s on many a team’s radar and there are bound to be offers from both Manchester sides, though Lyon is also in play.

Since Brazilians tend to have a hard time settling in England, and Lyon has such a youthful team alongside a fantastic record of bringing in players from overseas and developing them into superstars, it seems like France would be the place to go.

Wherever he lands, expect to hear more from him this season.

    I was going to ask if he’s seen time for the Brazilian national squad, but then actually clicked thru and read the article you linked to:
    “Ganso was named as one of seven backups for Carlos Dunga’s World Cup squad, and although there was a public outcry following the player’s subsequent omission, his lack of a senior Brazil cap has not hindered interest in him from Manchester United and Manchester City. Ganso is widely recognised as his country’s next great hope.”

    So wonder if he’ll see time when the Brazilians (coached by who?) come to the Meadowlands Aug 10 to play USMNT?
