Ricardo Izecson Dos Santos Leite aka Kaka might be leaving Spain after only one season. The world’s second most expensive player failed to live up to expectation at Spanish giants Real Madrid after his whooping 65 million Euro transfer from AC Milan last summer.
With Jose Mourinho taking over from Pellegrini, drastic changes are expected at Real. Kaka stated that he might not be able to adapt to Mourinho’s new changes thus leaving the door open for a possible exit.
EPL club Chelsea are keen on bringing the Brazilian to London in a 50 million Pound transfer deal that will shatter Robinho’s record 32 Million Pound move to Manchester City in 2008. Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti is a big admirer of Kaka and he believes he can bring out the best in the disgraced star.
Ancelotti and Kaka had a great relationship while at Milan where they won more than five titles together, including two Champions League titles. With Ballack having left the club as a free agent, Chelsea are looking for a strong replacement who can guide them to the maiden Champions League title next season.
Meanwhile, Kaka is the latest player to express his frustration at Brazil’s quarter final World Cup exit.
“We are feeling this defeat very much. Nobody is feeling it more than the players. The World Cup is like that: great expectations are created.
“Now we have four years for another Cup. I don’t know what will happen then, I don’t know if I will be in another World Cup. I fought hard to be in this World Cup and I know that this has not been acknowledged.
“Four years from now is too far to start planning. This is a moment to reflect on things in my life and my career.
“I know the pain that the fans are feeling.”
Kaka is definitely a good choice for Chelsea, the only question is whether he can adapt to the English style (tha is if his move materialises).
