Brazilian legend Kaka is ready to leave Real Madrid this summer and is open to a move to the Premier League, according to Sao Paulo president Paulo de Jesus Lopes.

The former AC Milan star has often been linked with a move to England during a glittering career, with Manchester City closest to securing an astonishing £100 million deal back in 2009.

Instead, the 30-year-old attacking midfielder moved to the Santiago Bernabeu, and picked up his first La Liga title last season with a renewed influence for Jose Mourinho’s side.

After three years with Los Blancos his time in the Spanish capital could be up however, with Lopes claiming that Sao Paulo can’t afford their former starlet, but that he’s happy to either stay in Spain or move to England.

"Kaka has decided to quit Madrid," he told O Globo in Brazil.

"He believes that England or remaining in Spain would be two interesting destinations for him. Sao Paulo can't afford him as his price-tag is astronomical and out of the reality of Brazilian football."

TalkSPORT claims that Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City could all renew their interest if the claims are revealed to be true, and Kaka would add an extra dimension to any Premier League side if he were to move in the summer transfer window.
