Chelsea’s Kaka fantasy may come true
Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out Chelsea swapping Didier Drogba for Kaka as “fantasy football”.
He must have watched a DVD of Manchester United’s 1999 Champions League triumph and saw the likes of Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Gary Neville and Nicky Butt and realised these were home-grown talents. So he invested even more in Chelsea’s academy and hoped that would reap a crop of young stars.
Five of them were fast-tracked into the first-team squad this season but that hasn’t worked. Not yet anyway. So when Fernando Torres indicated that, after all, he would like to join Chelsea a £50million deal was brokered and Abramovich had — at last — a star in his prime. Well, hopefully. Torres may be still just 26 but there are fears that his best days are already behind him.
No matter. What it all means is that Abramovich has re-acquired the taste for some big names – which is where Kaka comes in. The 28 year-old is a world superstar but, partly through injury, he has had a miserable time at Real Madrid, who he joined after shunning Manchester City.
It means the Brazilian might be available at a comparatively low price, £25million has been mooted, especially if Chelsea were willing to add the makeweight of Drogba, who appears set to leave this summer despite protestations that he wants to stay. His age, 33 yesterday, counts against him, however.
Such deals are often wishful thinking. But Kaka to Chelsea not only makes sense but is certainly gaining momentum within the club where there is a feeling that a new team is starting to emerge. “There is a strong chance it will happen,” one senior source said yesterday.

This is interesting. It does seem that Real Madrid star Kaka is being edged towards the door by Jose Mourinho and the Brazilian’s time at the Bernabeu could be coming to an end and Chelsea appear to be leading the chase for the 28 year old playmaker.
Roman Abramovich appears to have recaptured a taste for spending big sums on big names and a move to sign the former AC Milan man will not only help sell a hell of a lot of merchandise but will also greatly help add more creativity to the club’s attack and whilst clearly he is no spring chicken he still has a lot to offer the West London club.
There is much speculation that a number of the Chelsea’s elder statesman may be on their way out with the likes of Florent Malouda, Didier Drogba and even Nicolas Anelka linked with moves from Stamford Bridge, Squad players like Salomon Kalou, Jose Bosingwa and Paulo Ferreira could also be culled as the Premier League title holders look to usher in a new era of success.
