Chelsea could be set to reignite Brazilian star Kaka’s fading career with a move for the playmaker this summer.
The 2007 Ballon D’Or winner has slipped down the pecking order at Real Madrid due to injury and having lost his starting place to Mesut Ozil, the arrival of Nuri Sahin from Borussia Dortmund has left him considering his options.
Chelsea were in line for the 29-year-old before he departed A.C Milan for €70m two summers ago and since their pursuit of Tottenham’s Luka Modric having stalled Kaka would fit the bill as a man to help unlock Fernando Torres’ goal-scoring ability.
It is thought that former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is willing to sell Kaka after growing frustrated with his persistent injuries.
Having been out for much of last season with a knee injury and doubts remaining over his fitness would mean Real Madrid are willing to accept around €25m up front for the player, the same figure Chelsea offered for Modric.
