Kaka could be the next big mover to the Principality.
AS Monaco are clearly not done with their summer spending despite having already shelled out £110m as they prepare a move for out-of-favour Real Madrid midfielder Kaka, according to fichajes.net.
The Brazilian was briefly the most expensive player in football history when he signed for Madrid from AC Milan for £57m in 2009, before Cristiano Ronaldo stole that crown shortly after with his eye-watering £80m fee.
However, since his move to the Santiago Bernabeu Kaka has failed to truly settle and has never found the form that saw the 31-year-old named the best player in the world in 2007 when he won the Ballon D’Or.
Injuries plagued the attacking midfielder’s first two seasons in the Spanish capital and since then the Brazil international has struggled to get a regular place in the starting XI.
Having spent four turbulent years at Madrid it now seems as if Kaka is finally ready to move on and super-rich Monaco are prepared to take a gamble and pick up the pieces of the midfielder’s career.
The club were promoted back to Ligue 1 following a two-year absence this season, but with Russian billionaire owner Dymitry Rybolovlev driving the side forward it is unlikely they will be fighting relegation next campaign.
In fact, having already secured the signatures of Radamel Falcao, Joao Moutinho, James Rodriguez and Ricardo Carvalho it’s more probable that the Principality club be be fighting to be French champions.
With a host of world-class players having already pledged their futures to Monaco, it will now have become a more attractive prospect to Kaka should he wish to make the move to the Mediterranean coast.
