It emerged yesterday in the English and Italian media that Chelsea entered discussions with AC Milan for the possible transfer of Brazilian playmaker Kaka’. The reports suggested that Chelsea’s offer was worth around Ã¢â€šÂ¬100 million which could prove to be too good to turn down by the heavily indebted AC Milan.
Today, Kaka’s advisor revealed that the player is excited by the prospect of playing his trade in London, according to the Lancashire Evening Post.
“Real Madrid offered 90 million euros (Ã‚Â£71million) last summer and Milan did not even think about the bid. This time is different. This is the first time we feel that a deal will definitely happen.” Said the player’s advisor, Diogo Kotscho, according to the report, before adding:
“Because of the situation Milan are in at the moment, the deal is good for all parties involved.
“The move would represent a significant increase in Kaka’s salary, on top of the 10% transfer fee that goes straight to the player anyway – some 15 million euros (Ã‚Â£12million).
“Chelsea are the club to be at right now. They are building a team to win everything.”
The deal would surely dwarf Zinedine Zidane’s record transfer which was worth Ã‚Â£46 million in 2001 and it would mark the second transfer of such magnitude between the Italian giants and Chelsea. The first being Andrei Shevchenko’s move to London two years ago.
