You do have to wonder if ADUG just did an internet search for ‘world’s best player’ after buying Manchester City. After all, the results generally consist of two players, both of whom have been linked with a move to Eastlands in the near future. While the Premier League outfit might now be immensely rich, they may have to lower their sights a touch and go for some other world-class talents instead.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Kaka has poured scorn (whatever that means) on a prospective move to Manchester, claiming that a move to England is fashionable at the moment but not for him. Indeed, while it has been reported that the Brazilian is looking for a move away from the San Siro, these comments don’t indicate this a jot.
“Before it was Real Madrid, now it’s England that is in fashion,” Kaka said of the latest transfer rumours. “The market is like that, just as Milan make offers, other clubs make offers to Milan.
“I will never ask to leave. I will only leave if Milan decide to sell me or perhaps the day when we no longer have the same objectives. That day has not come.
He explained: “I have always been treated well by club executives and my rapport with them is excellent.
“Perhaps one day they may change their approach with respect to me but I don’t see that happening.
“Milan has done a good job in the transfer market, the club still wants to win and be competitive and those are my aims.”
Therefore, despite some ambiguous comments from his agent yesterday, it doesn’t appear as though the World Player of the Year will be joining up with his compatriot Robinho in a hurry. Not that the club’s new owners will either a) be put off or b) be bothered about having to wave a large sum of cash in another player’s direction.
