Kaka’s father and agent has stated that the Milan superstar will play for Real Madrid next season amid rumours that Florentino Perez will make him his main signing.
Bosco Leita has told the media that he expects his son to be wearing the all white of the Spanish giants after speculation increased about what KakaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s next move would be.
Although the Milan hierarchy continue to state that they want to keep their best players, it was the willingness to sell to Manchester City that sparked Kaka’s interest in leaving, according to AS.
“Kaka will play with the Real Madrid of Florentino Perez,” his father and agent Bosco Leite is quoted as stating.
Now Perez is set to hold further talks with the Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani and owner Silvio Berlusconi, two men with whom he has a good relationship.
One stumbling block to the move is said to be the Ã¢â€šÂ¬60 million asking price and the would-be Madrid president is hoping to lower that by at least Ã¢â€šÂ¬10 million.
Several other familiar targets are also mentioned, with Cristiano Ronaldo still on los Merengues’ list. Xabi Alonso, David Villa and David Silva remain objectives, but it is now recognised that Franck Ribery may be out of reach after he told reporters that he would prefer to go to Barcelona.
Perez has yet to officially announce that he will stand in the summer presidential elections but he is expected to so next week now that Madrid’s chances in the title race have diminished.
