Real Madrid may be about to offload Brazilian superstar Kaka - and are ready to sound out Chelsea about signing him reports the Daily Mirror.
The 29-year-old midfielder has endured mixed fortunes at the Bernabeu under the stewardship of Jose Mourinho, and despite his £59million move from AC Milan just two years ago, Kaka is by no means guaranteed a place in the side.
The La Liga giants may be tempted to sell for around £30million, and agents are currently putting the feelers out, and believe Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich may be tempted.
Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to continue strengthening his squad at Stamford Bridge, and it's safe to say that a big-name signing would do well to boost morale and confidence in west London.
Kaka of course, has been linked with Chelsea before, after a 'tweet' from his mother in May suggested the former European and World Footballer of the Year could be on his way to England - but the Blues were quick to deny the reports.
Villas-Boas is ready to offload Nicolas Anelka in Janaury as well as a number of the club's other ageing stars, in what looks set to be a busy month for Chelsea.
And having been knocked back in their attempts to sign Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric in the summer, the Blues may be forced to consider alternative attacking options and Kaka could be the answer.
