Stamford Bridge side keen on landing Brazilian international in last minute move.
Chelsea are reportedly interested in a last ditch deal to sign Real Madrid midfielder Kaka.
The Brazilian international has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge for some time now and Roman Abramovich is keen to strengthen his Blues side whilst also bringing in a ‘marquee’ signing to help appease unhappy fans who have seen the West London club fall away from contention in every major competition since Rafa Benitez took over from Roberto Di Matteo last November.

Though Abramovich is aware that such a move could be too late in the day for the January transfer window the Russian is keen to send the Bernabeu playmaker a clear message that Chelsea are interested in acquiring his services.
The former AC Milan man has become something of a bit-part player under manager Jose Mourinho, who does not appear to see him as part of his first-team plans.
Both PSG and AC Milan were linked with moves to sign the 30 year old but were apparently unwilling to meet the former World Footballer of the Year’s wage demands, demands Abramovich is happy to meet.
The Chelsea owner sees Kaka as a potential short term replacement for Frank Lampard and believes he could persuade the attacking midfielder to make a move to the Premier League side either this month or more likely in the summer.
Kaka may well be tempted by the chance of a move to Stamford Bridge, not least because he would link up with national team colleagues David Luiz, Ramires and Oscar.
Kaka has started just four of Real Madrid’s 35 games in all competitions this term.
