The plot being hatched by the recently crowned Premier League and FA Cup champions has been given the thumbs up by Blues owner Roman Abramovich, who is looking for experience to help guide his club to UEFA Champions League success.
Despite the massive transfer fee involved, the News of the World has claimed that Abramovich is intent on helping Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti build on this season’s glory – with the Russian oligarch highlighting Kaka as one player who could take the west London side onto bigger and better things.
The prospect of being reunited with Ancelotti, who coached Kaka at AC Milan, will surely appeal to the Brazilian playmaker, especially after he endured a tough La Liga baptism thanks to a campaign blighted by both injury and a loss of form.
The fact that Real also failed to land any trophies this season – they were dumped out of the UEFA Champions League by Inter Milan in the semi-finals and lost out on the La Liga title to Barcelona on Sunday – looks set to be a decisive factor in Kaka moving to England.
By turning down Manchester City’s lucrative approach last summer, the 28-year-old showed that football, rather than personal gain, remains his number one priority, and with Ancelotti seemingly building a Stamford Bridge dynasty, Chelsea’s approach may just be too tempting for Kaka to ignore.
