Perez: I want Kaka and Ronaldo

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed he will "work to bring Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo" to the Bernabeu.

Madrid are currently in negotiations to sign Kaka, while they have long been linked with a move for the Portugal international. There continues to be speculation that they already have a deal in place for Ronaldo and although Perez insists he knows nothing about any such contract, he admits the 24-year-old is one of his main targets this summer.

"Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the best players in the world," Perez told Atena 3. "I'm going to work to bring Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid."

He added: "I've been here a few days and neither (former president, Vicente) Boluda nor anyone else has talked to me about this supposed agreement.

"What would be very good is to see these great players at Real Madrid this season. Cristiano would be one of these."

Perez is close to making his first signing since returning as president with Madrid on the verge of completing a world-record transfer deal for AC Milan playmaker Kaka.

It seemed on Wednesday as if Chelsea were about to hijack the bid but the Barclays Premier League club issued a statement denying reports they had made a £73.3 million offer to Milan, something which delights Perez,

"This statement is an advantage," he added. "If Chelsea are not competing with us it is good news.

"The problem wouldn't be the presentation of Kaka, the problem would be if we are capable of fixing it so he plays for Real Madrid.

"We have good relations with Milan. I'm a friend of (general manager, Adriano) Galliani which will make this agreement easier. Moreover, the player has shown his desire to play for us."
