Anfield linked with move for Real Madrid star….ridiculous!

Kaka is set to be offered a January move to England after failing to live up to expectations at Real Madrid.
Inter Milan had looked the most likely destination for the Brazil playmaker, but the Italians are ready to ditch their interest for fears of intense competition from Barclays Premier League sides looking to make an impact signing when the transfer window reopens.
Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is a confirmed admirer of the 28-year-old, while Manchester City and Liverpool have also been identified as potential destinations.
City have the resources and boss Roberto Mancini has indicated he will re-enter the market in January. Relations between City, Milan and Kaka were damaged by a botched bid to take him to Eastlands in January 2009, but the landscape has changed.
The player’s standing has declined, while City’s status has rocketed since then and a deal may now be attractive.
Liverpool have also been mooted as a potential suitor by sources in Italy, with Kaka tipped as the kind of signing that would be a coup for the new Anfield owners. (Daily Mail)
Every so often there is a rumour that really does stretch beyond the realms of reason and into the territory of the mindlessly stupid and this is just one such occasion. Quite how anyone can claim that Liverpool would be planning a move for Real Madrid’s £56m acquisition Kaka with a straight face is beyond me.
Even if the Merseyside club gets new backers AND they avoid any points penalty due to going into administration there is still no chance that Roy Hodgson would a) consider making a move for the Brazilian international and b) even less of a chance the 28 year old would consider a move to a club that is in such a state of crisis both on and off the field.
Perhaps in a year or so when things may look a hell of a lot better but even then it seems unlikely Kaka would move to the Premier League at all, not even to Man City where he would not doubt be offered millions every single week of his contract.
Also take into account that the new owners, if or indeed when they seal the deal, are not billionaires they are well off but not in the same league as some owners so even if they wanted to pull off a coup of a signing it would be more likely to be a top notch signing and not a superstar purchase.
Does any Liverpool fan believe such a deal would occur? Would it even be wise for the stricken club to spend big on one player when it seems they need at least 3 or 4 quality players to help improve their average squad rather than blowing the entire transfer pot on one mega move.
Some how this story has cropped up all over the shop and is simply an impossible dream that no one at Anfield even considered in the first place.
