Brazilian attacking midfielder Ganso has revealed his desire to play for AC Milan next season.

The Santos star is a target of top European clubs, including the Rossoneri, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

The 21-year-old is valued at more than £20million by Santos and is likely to move to Europe in the winter transfer window.

In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, Ganso said: "`My dream is to beat (Lionel) Messi's Barcelona in the FIFA Club World Cup (in December) and then join AC Milan in January.''

Earlier this week, Ganso scored in Santos' 2-1 win over Penarol to win the Copa Libertadores.
