Manchester United manager David Moyes will consider a move for Real Madrid midfielder Kaka, after being unsuccessful in his pursuit of Cesc Fabregas, according to Sports Direct News.

The new United boss has been keen to recruit a new midfielder all summer, but has so far failed in his attempts to sign the likes of Thiago Alcantara, Kevin Strootman and now former Arsenal captain Fabregas.

The former Everton manager has prioritised this position above all others due to the retirement of Paul Scholes and the poor form of the likes of Anderson and other attacking midfielders in his squad, and may see Kaka as a decent alternative to his other targets.

The Brazilian emerged as one of the best players in the world during his days at AC Milan, but has flopped somewhat since his £56million move to Real Madrid in 2009.

Injuries have taken their toll on the 31-year-old, and he may be a risky signing for United, even at a relatively cheap fee of around £10million, though options are fast running out for the Premier League champions with the new season set to start and the transfer window approaching its end.

Real Madrid have parted company with a number of squad players already this summer, with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon sold to raise funds for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.
