Chelsea have been handed a potential green light in their pursuit of Brazilian international Kaka.
The Real Madrid midfielder has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge on a number of occasions in the past, with previous managers always failing to lure the 29-year-old to the capital.
However, reports in Spanish publication Marca now claim Madrid are willing to sell the attacking midfielder at the end of the season, with offers in the region of £30 million expected to be enough for the current La Liga leaders to part company with Kaka.
Chelsea won’t have things all their own way though, with Paris St. Germain and Inter Milan also said to be keen on the player. A move to Inter would be contentious, given Kaka’s connection to AC Milan during six-years of success at the San Siro.
With pressure continuing to mount on AVB, the signing of Kaka could represent a lifeline for the former Porto boss, with Roman Abramovich a long-term admirer of the 82-cap international.
