Manchester United and Arsenal have been placed on red-alert after Real Madrid midfielder Kaka revealed his intentions to leave the club, reports the Daily Express.
The 31-year-old has grown increasingly frustrated at his lack of playing time at the Santiago Bernabeu, and continues to fall further and further down the first-team pecking order.
The expected arrival of Gareth Bale will limit Kaka's action even further, and so he finally announced his desire to leave the Spanish capital before the close of the transfer window.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is understood to be considering a late move for the Brazilian, as he looks to bring a marquee signing to the Emirates Stadium. However, he could face competition from the likes of Manchester United and Kaka's former club AC Milan.
David Moyes is also in the market for a creative midfield addition at Old Trafford, and the reigning Premier League champions are known to be long-term admirers of the Real Madrid playmaker.
A host of names have been linked with a move away from Real Madrid this summer, as the club attempts to balance its books once they splash out a world record transfer fee on bringing Bale to La Liga.
Mesut Ozil and Angel di Maria are the names most frequently mooted for exits, but with both players refuting speculation they are poised to leave, Kaka's departure - to Manchester United, Arsenal, or somewhere else - could well be sanctioned over the coming days.
