Why Chelsea have the upper hand on Real Madrid after last-ditch Kaka bid
Brazilian star prefers move to Premier League
Today’s papers are full of rumours that Chelsea have launched a £73.5 million bid to derail Kaka’s proposed move to Real Madrid. The Blues were handed the initiative as Kaka returned to Brazil for international duty and AC Milan drag their heels over finalising the deal because owner Silvio Berlusconi doesn’t want to complete the unpopular sale ahead of Sunday’s European elections.
The Sun reports that Carlo Ancelotti made a phone call to Kaka in Brazil urging him to turn down Real and join him at Stamford Bridge. But perhaps even more significantly that that, Kaka has said he would prefer a move to England.
Asked by Four Four Two magazine whether he would prefer to go to Spain or England if he ever did leave Milan, he replied: “I like the Premier League a lot, so maybe that would be my choice. Whenever I can, I try to swap experiences with my friends playing in other countries and leagues.
“All the players that I’ve talked to that play in the Premier League, or used to play there, say that it’s a difficult league – tough, very fast and competitive.”
So that’s all sorted then!
