Kaka: Linked with a summer move but Sao Paulo doubt they could sign Real Madrid

The Brazilian duo have been linked with moves this summer but Sao Paulo appreciate that it is difficult to compete financially with clubs from Europe.

Kaka has struggled to hold down a regular spot at Real Madrid over the past couple of years but has previously indicated that he would like to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu, and Sao Paulo know it would take a substantial bid to lure the 31-year-old away.

Vice-president Joao Paulo de Jesus Lopes told Globo Esporte: "I heard that Real Madrid are selling Kaka to Sao Paulo. No doubt we are a big club, but it would need a lot of ambition to make an offer that makes Real Madrid happy.

"Same thing regarding Jonas, we were interested in the past, but there is nothing going on at the moment."

Asked further about the chances of landing Kaka, he added: "Kaka has expectations at Real Madrid, and other clubs in Europe.

"If he doesn't stay there, there is interest in the United States too. All these offers can be more tempting than any a Brazilian club could do.

"The idea that Kaka could come to Sao Paulo is unrealistic."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
