He seems happy. Let’s see for how long

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.

The most recent Ganso debacle

Ganso wants to move. Again.

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.

Lucas Moura close to PSG

Lucas heading France

Since then, they bought players such as Javier Pastore from Palermo for €40m and Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Milan for €65m.
