Phew. His flight was supposed to be short, but it was longer than we expected. At least, the soap opera has reached its final chapter: Ganso has finally joined São Paulo.
Some people who follow the Brazilian Championship closely and don’t live in Brazil might be aware of that. I don’t know (yet) the profile of most readers in this blog, but I’ll assume that you haven’t heard anything about the latest Ganso soap opera.
To put it short, Ganso wants to move on. Problem is, he wants to go to a Brazilian club. Worst of all, his favored club to do such thing is a regional Santos rival: São Paulo.
I didn’t imagine Juvenal Juvêncio would be able to allow it to be completed that fast. But considering the values involved in the deal, I shouldn’t be that surprised. It seems that São Paulo just finished Lucas’ transfer to Paris Saint-Germain this Wednesday morning after a meeting between representatives of both clubs. The deal is rumored to be around the €43m mark.
French side Paris Saint-Germain joined the club of “new riches” back in 2011. Since then, they bought players such as Javier Pastore from Palermo for €40m and Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Milan for €65m. It also seems that they don’t care at all about UEFA’s Financial Fair Play, and are calling Michel Platini a “bluff” in the way. You’d think they would stop their craziness in buying two of the best players in the world at their current positions this year, but it seems that they don’t think it’s enough.
