A report on ESPNsoccernet suggests that Chelsea could be set to focus all their attentions on trying to land AC Milan star Kaka after Real Madrid emphatically slammed the door on the Robinho transaction.
The Blues had been courting 24-year old Robinho since July when Chelsea appointed Luiz Felipe Scolari, but have accepted defeat in their bid after the player’s agent revealed that Real are refusing to discuss the possibility of a move.
Wagner Ribeiro told the Daily Star newspaper that representatives of Madrid failed to show for a planned meeting to discuss Robinho’s desired move to Chelsea leaving the deal dead in the water.
‘The dream of Chelsea is broken because Real Madrid will not even negotiate. It is impossible to advance any conversation,’ said Riberio. ‘Next summer we will sort out the situation if people can show some sense.’
According to ESPNsoccernet, the possibility of luring 26-year old Kaka from the San Siro now becomes a distinct possibility for Chelsea, but the only stumbling block could be the Serie A club’s Ã‚Â£70million valuation of the playmaker.
