Kaka is yours for 22m! Chelsea prepare bid for Real Madrid”s unsettled superstar
Out of favour: Kaka has struggled to hold down a first-team place at Real Madrid
Chelsea are hoping to land Real Madrid”s unsettled Brazilian star Kaka for 22million.
Kaka has been out-of-favour at Jose Mourinho”s side since Jose Mourinho”s arrival last summer, with the former Blues boss preferring to use Mesut Ozil in “the hole”.
Chelsea have already sold Nicolas Anelka to Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, and with Alex and Florent Malouda – a 6m target for Russian side Anzhi – also set to leave in January, there are funds available.
Kaka cost Real a whopping 55m back in 2009, but they are prepare to let the 29-year-old leave for less than half of that fee.
A Madrid source said: “Kaka has always interested other clubs and Mourinho has decided that he has far better options in midfield so the best thing to do is to move him on.
“There has been no concrete offer but it is now known that the club would accept an offer in the region of 22m.”

PSG and Milan have also been linked with the Brazilian.
The French side”s Sporting Director Leonardo admitted that he has the money to sign Kaka, while Milan president Silvio Berlusconi said: “There is always a place at the San Siro for a 100 per cent Milanista.”
