Keane talks up Galaxy Kaka move

Robbie Keane has linked Kaka with a move to LA Galaxy, as the MLS club begin their search for a big name to replace David Beckham.

Kaka has struggled to find consistent first-team action at Real Madrid, and the MLS Cup finalists would offer a potential outlet should the Real Madrid star seek a transfer.

“If we want to – as a team and an organisation – to push on and be the best that we can, to attract players like Kaka would be brilliant,” Robbie Keane has told reporters at a press conference.

Rumours continue to link the 30-year-old away from Santiago Bernabeu as Kaka has largely failed to recapture his AC Milan form, which saw him awarded the 2007 Ballon d’Or.

“Someone like Kaka was only voted one of the best players in the world a few years ago,” Keane said.

“We welcome anyone with his stature and his ability to the Galaxy, but ultimately it’s down to the boss.”

The ‘boss’ – AEG president Tim Leiweke – agrees with the Republic of Ireland international. The man who brought Beckham to Los Angeles is now batting his eyelashes at Kaka, and doing so publicly.

Kaka has frequently talked of his admiration for the United States and his brother, Digao, plays for the New York Red Bulls.

“We’re well aware of Kaka’s interest in MLS, and we in turn have made it very clear to him that he’s aware of our interest in him,” Leiweke told Sports Illustrated.

“We have a great relationship with Real Madrid, and just as we worked through a player with them six years ago (Beckham), I’m absolutely convinced we could find the right deal this time, too.”
