KAKA could be heading to Manchester United in a shock loan deal this month which could lead to a permanent £50million move.
The Brazilian superstar midfielder has been heavily linked to a move to Inter Milan – with Real Madrid wanting £50m.
Chelsea, too, are seriously interested in grabbing the playmaker who has now fully recovered from an ankle injury after surgery.
The link has already been established with Kaka, 28, winning a Champions League trophy with Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti when they worked together at AC Milan.
But United, according to reports in Spain, have now emerged as clear favourites with Real boss Jose Mourinho happy to do business with his old sparring partner Sir Alex Ferguson.

Whilst there is no denying that Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho enjoy a good relationship but does that really mean that the Manchester United boss is going to land Kaka? That seems to be the entire basis of this source’s story. It does seem eminently likely that the Brazilian international will leave the Bernabeu either in January or more likely next summer but a move back to Italy may be more likely.
Jose Mourinho brought in Mesut Ozil to fill the void left by the injured former World Footballer of the Year and now that he is fighting fit and ready for action it seems that there is no space for the 28 year old within the first team picture.
The former AC Milan man has made noises about wanting to fight for his place and may opt to stick it out at the Bernabeu until at least the end of the season when he is more likely to make his mind up over any potential move.
Some sources believe he could make a move to Inter Milan but surely as a former AC Milan hero Kaka would never dream of making any move to their sworn enemies, not least because his San Siro exit itself was something of a powder keg event that left many Rossoneri fans very unhappy indeed.
