The long-term target, which interest in him has been confirmed many times is Paulo Henrique Ganso, but according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the priorities have changed and Santos’ Danilo is the man Milan want.
The arrival of Stephan El Shaarawy from Genoa may have contributed to Milan’s reported priority change as they are believed to be keen on the Copa Libertadores winner, who scored the winning goal in the final.
Bringing Danilo, like Ganso would be tricky; apart from the fact that he’s non-EU player, the right wingback’s card is split: 37.5% owned by Santos, 37.5% by DIS and the rest by former club América (MG).
The 19-year-old is very liked by the club and the same Gazzetta suggested yesterday that Milan had an agreement in place for Danilo in January. Santos, meanwhile are willing to buy his card and own him entirely.
