Stamford Bridge alerted as Bernabeu star looks set for exit.
PREMIER LEAGUE clubs could line up a move for Real Madrid playmaker Kaka after he was coy last night about his future at the La Liga giants.
Kaka, who signed for Los Merengues in 2009 for £56m has failed to reproduce the same form that catapulted him to superstar status at AC Milan.
The Brazilian has been linked in the past to Chelsea and with the samba influence permeating at the west London outfit, a move to Stamford Bridge does not seem fanciful.

Though Chelsea are certainly moving towards a more youthful first team squad perhaps there is scope for the addition of a ‘Marquee’ signing such as this to help strengthen the Blues squad? Roman Abramovich has certainly taken interest in the former AC Milan man in the past and at 30 the Brazilian is hardly over the hill.
Ever since Jose Mourinho took over at Real Madrid he has put obstacles in the way of Kaka’s progress at the club. Returning from the 2010 World Cup with a knee injury didn’t help matters but the purchase of players like Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil and finally Luka Modric appear to have led to something of a death knell for the talented playmaker.
Kaka only really gets a run out in cup matches and the occasional La Liga cameo role coming off the bench and as such the attacking midfielder may want to consider his options. There has been talk of a possible move to the MLS but such a switch could be a tad premature for a player who certainly has the ability to make an impact in Europe’s biggest leagues.
Mourinho will almost certainly consider offers for the player and Real Madrid would clearly not expect offers anywhere near the £56m they spent on the former World Player of the Year.
Chelsea already plays host to Kaka’s international team-mates Oscar, David Luiz and Ramires and though the Blues squad is chockablock with midfield talent there may perhaps be room for Kaka, especially if Frank Lampard chooses to leave the West London club in the summer.
Kaka has started just four of Real Madrid’s 24 matches in all competitions this season and any move that could help re-ignite his career would surely be considered and perhaps a move to the Premier League is a challenge the midfield maestro would be ready to accept at this juncture of his career.
