Brazilian legend kaka is set to turn down interested parties in the Premier League in favour of a move to Major League Soccer in America, according to his brother.

The 30-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Real Madrid in the past 12 months, with Jose Mourinho giving the former AC Milan star limited opportunities in the Spanish capital.

Having almost joined Manchester City for an astonishing £100 million in 2009, Kaka’s career has somewhat stalled under ‘the special one’ following a £56 million switch that same year.

And, whilst Los Blancos would be eager to get some sort of return for the 2007 Ballon d’Or winner, Madrid were open to selling the player in the summer.

All the top teams in England have been linked with the player at one stage or another, but it appears the Big Apple is on the mind of the former Sao Paulo starlet.

"The New York Red Bulls is a possibility to contemplate,” brother Digão told Tuttomercatoweb.

"Now it is not possible under the contract that binds him to Real Madrid. He has three years left on his contract and it is complicated for him to leave. However, in the future he would like to live in New York for a while."

Kaka would join Henry, Tim Cahill, Robbie Keane and David Beckham in the USA, were he to make the move across the Atlantic, but designated player rules and his current length of contract at the Santiago Bernabeu means a deal is still some way off.
