Rumours abound that Brazil’s Kaka is about to join Robbie Keane at LA Galaxy and Ireland’s skipper has said he would welcome the Real Madrid playmaker with open arms.
While he was busy scoring a wonder goal in Madrid’s trashing of Ajax last week, the internet was buzzing with reports of Kaka’s impending move to the MLS. A misleading headline on an American website seemed to confirm the Brazilian was linking up with Robbie Keane in LA following the departure of David Beckham. The story has since been downplayed but Keane has expressed his wish to see the global star join him at the Home Depot Center.
“If we want to, as a team and an organisation, to push on and be the best that we can, to attract players like Kaká would be brilliant” said Keane.
“Someone like Kaká was only voted one of the best players in the world a few years ago.
Kaka captained Real Madrid in last week’s Champions League clash but has struggled to feature in Jose Mourinho’s plans.
“It’s not a comfortable situation for either the club or me. I do not know what will happen but I have a contract until 2015.”
“The club called me in the summer and we did not find a solution. In January, I hope to know what the club wants.”
Kaka was recalled to the Brazilian national side in October scoring against Japan and Iraq and has previously expressed a desire to play in the MLS where his brother Digao stars for the New York Red Bulls. Following David Beckham’s final game, LA Galaxy are on the look-out for a marquee name to complete the trio of designated players for next season.
