Could White Hart Lane side really lure Bernabeu star to North London?
HARRY REDKNAPP is set to hijack Arsene Wenger’s bid to snare Kaka on a loan deal from Real Madrid.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is confident he can convince the Brazil star to come to White Hart Lane to reignite his career – and he has the Bernabeu giants’ backing for his bid.
Madrid snubbed Wenger’s approach to take Kaka to The Emirates because they are not keen on loaning him to a side challenging in the Champions League.
With Tottenham in the Europa League and Levy enjoying a good relationship with the Madrid board, Spurs could just get their man.

What are the odds of this happening? Well close to zero clearly, not least as Tottenham do not have Champions League football to offer the Brazilian international. Arsene Wenger reportedly attempted to nab the talented playmaker earlier in the month but any move was quickly shunned by the La Liga giants and whilst Jose Mourinho and Harry Redknapp are thought to be good friends, is that enough to base the possibility of a hugely unlikely transfer, even on loan, not really.
The 29 year old former AC Milan man has found himself pushed out of the Real Madrid first team by the likes of Mesut Ozil and Angel Di Maria and whilst the former World Footballer of the Year wants to stay at the club and fight for his place the Spanish side may look to cash in on his services whilst they can.
Kaka cost Real Madrid £56m just two years ago and any hope of re-claiming a chunk of that fee would revolve around selling the player soon. Sending him out on loan could lead to a permanent move but it seems next to impossible that the attacking midfielder would consider a move to a side who are not playing in the Champions League.
Tottenham boss Redknapp is keen to bring in further additions this month but has been told by chairman Daniel Levy that the club must sell more of their expansive squad first. Jamie O’Hara and Robbie Keane left for Wolves and LA Galaxy respectively and the likes of Wilson Palacios, Peter Crouch, Alan Hutton, Giovani dos Santos and Jermaine Jenas may yet follow those players out the White Hart Lane exit.
