MLS side line up Bernabeu swoop.
Frank Lampard’s hopes of following David Beckham to the MLS could be dashed after it emerged LA Galaxy want to sign the Brazilian Kaka from Real Madrid.
Beckham plays his final game for Galaxy tomorrow when his team take on Houston in the MLS Cup Final here in Los Angeles.
The Galaxy have been exploring ways of bringing Chelsea midfielder Lampard to the club to fill the slot vacated by Beckham and revealed today that they have had talks with the 35-year-old, who is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

In terms of mouthwatering prospects that the MLS could look to land to fill the void that will appear when David Beckham leaves the LA Galaxy, a move to bring Brazilian international Kaka would perhaps be hard to top. This news appears to have stifled talk of a possible move to bring in Frank Lampard, who could apparently be on his way to Ligue 2 side Monaco.
The former AC Milan man could be a perfect poster boy for football stateside and arguably the 30 year old has far more to offer than Lampard, who is four years his senior. Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho would probably not stand in the way of such a transfer as Kaka is now some way down the Bernabeu pecking order behind the likes of Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria and Luka Modric.
Kaka has previously stated his intention to remain at the La Liga side and fight for his place but having stared just three of the club’s 20 fixtures in all competitions this term it may well become clear that he is fighting a losing battle.
