Brazilian giants Corinthians are interested in bringing Real Madrid's attacking midfielder Kaka back to his homeland, according to Diarro AS.

The former AC Milan star, now 31, has endured mixed fortunes in his four years at the Bernabeu, and could be tempted into a move in order to boost his chances of a spot in Brazil's 2014 World Cup team. 

However, any transfer hinges on Madrid significantly lowering their valuation of the player, for whom Corinthians are only willing to pay half of his market value.

Kaka would also have to accept a highly reduced wage, with the reigning FIFA Club World Cup champions only able to offer around 50% of his current £150,000 a week salary. 

The playmaker has been riddled by injuries and sporadic form during his time with the nine-times European Champions. Last season he made just 19 league appearances, scoring three times, while through the last four seasons he totals just 85 games out of a possible 152. 

And with Kaka's contract not set to expire until 2015, Madrid could be tempted to try and get the midfielder of their wage bill, making room for the likes of Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez - who have both been linked with the club.

The player's agent - Tadeu Cruz - has already denied the possibility of a transfer to Corinthians, but admits a move is a possibility, with another of Kaka's former clubs - Sao Paulo - another conceivable destination. 

A decision on the player's future will be made once Madrid have appointed their new manager.
