Real Madrid have confirmed their signing of AC Milan’s Kaka for £56 million. Just days after repeatedly claiming that he was going to stay, the deal has now gone through, with a medical being completed in Brazil last night.
So, does this mean we no longer have to worry about them coming in for Cristiano Ronaldo?
Unfortunately not. Whilst still claiming they want to stay on our good side, it is clear Florentino Perez is keen to add Ronaldo’s name to their summer transfers.
“We’re always thinking about great players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic are among other great players around the world,” said Perez. “We all know that these are players that we would like, but they all can’t come. Ronaldo is a great player who we’d like to bring to the club, but first we have to speak to Manchester United because the important thing is for us to maintain a good rapport with everyone.”
