Galatasaray favourites for Kaka

Kaka is on the verge of leaving Real Madrid, with Turkish club Galatasaray now favourties to acquire his signature.

Several media outlets in Spain claim that the Brazilian midfielder is nearing the exit door at Santiago Bernabeu with Fatih Terim's side most likely to sign the former Milan man, despite interest from New York Red Bulls and LA Galaxy.

The President of the Aslan Unal Aysal has denied to comment on the rumours, but did concede that the Brazil international would be welcomed with open arms.

“Kaka is happy in Madrid,” he said. “And if he came here in January we could not guarantee him Champions League like Madrid.

“But despite these difficulties, if Terim wants me to speak to Real Madrid, I will try with all my strength [to get him].”

One stumbling block for the move could be wages – Kaka is currenlty on €9m per year at Los Blancos.
