1) Paulo Henrique, Paulo Henrique Ganso or Ganso
At Santos it is Neymar that receives most of the plaudits. The skill, hair style, teen pregnancy stories, wonder goals and tantrums are a journalist’s wet dream. However for the Brazilian national team, desperately searching for a future Number 10, the future development of the midfield playmaker Paulo Henrique ‘Ganso’ has probably more long-term significance.
Still only 21, this attacking midfielder has already been around the Santos first team for three seasons. In 2009, he received a nomination for the Brazilian Football Confederation award for "Breakthrough Player" of the season. Along with Neymar, Ganso was overlooked for the World Cup as the ever-pragmatic Dunga commented on his inexperience and how his style was too similar to Kaka’s.
Back at Santos last season’s departure of Robinho, and the arrival of Elano, appeared to coincide with a run of good form for Ganso which was rewarded with an international call up. However, recent injury has prevented him from being involved in Santos’ Copa Libertadores challenge and it may keep him out of the Brazilian Copa America squad. However, it hasn’t stifled interest from abroad with Chelsea, Spurs and most recently Real Madrid reported as showing an interest in a player who is now valued at a cool $50 million.
