The 21-year-old is one of the most sought after players in the world, with a whole host of European clubs reportedly interested in signing him this summer, including Manchester City, Chelsea and Barcelona.
Santos president Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro recently admitted that it was possible the forward could stay with his club even beyond the end of his current contract in 2014.
And now the player has told the media that his father - who represents him - is in talks with the Vila Belmiro over extending his stay.
When asked by ESPN Brazil about his chances of extending his deal with Santos, he said: "Why not? Talks are underway, but they are more with my father than with me."
