Real Madrid President Florentino Perez is not prepared to sell Brazilian Kaka. Contrary to reports that are going on in the media, Perez has maintained that despite the 28 year old struggling for fitness since moving from Milan last summer, he is not willing to lose one of his record signings.
Madrid paid 65 million Euros for Kaka in June last year making him the second most expensive player in the world. The former World Player struggled in his first year with Los Blancos leading to rumours that he would not last in Spain.
To add salt to injury, niggling injuries kept him out of action for lengthy spells reducing his fitness to record lows. The arrival of Jose Mourinho this summer only made things worse as the Portuguese made it very clear that he was not a big fan of the Brazilian.
What followed was a massive spending spree in the summer that saw Mourinho buy players who he identified as potential replacements for Kaka. This in turn led to big European clubs voicing their desire to sign the play maker.
So far Inter Milan, AC Milan, Chelsea and his former club Santos have all been linked with Kaka. However, the Nerazzurri have expressed the greatest desire to sign the play maker.
Kaka is recuperating from a knee injury that he sustained while on international duty with Brazil during the summer World Cup. He however aggravated it during Madrid’s pre season tour in the United States.
Speaking via his twitter account, Kaka reiterated that his desire is to stay with Madrid.
”My declarations are coming out in some media that are not true. My concern at this time is solely and exclusively with my physical recovery.”
Kaka is expected back from his injury in December however , lack of fitness and stiff competition from team mates Oezil and Sergio Canales could see him stay on the bench much longer.
There is no denying Kaka’s talent but if he does not improve quickly he might be in danger of seeing his career ending on a bad note.
