Manchester United and Arsenal on transfer alert

Kaka (Real Madrid)Manchester United and Arsenal could offer Real Madrid star Kaka an escape route from the Bernabeu, after the midfielder admitted he wants to leave the club, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Brazilian ace looks set for a tough fight for regular first-team football this season, with the imminent arrival of Gareth Bale likely to have a huge impact on the La Liga giants‘ squad.

The 31-year-old has endured a tough spell in the Spanish capital since his 2009 move, with injuries and the presence of a plethora of big name players denting his hopes of living up to his £56m price tag.

Both Arsenal and United have been linked with moves for his signature in the past, and could reignite their interest in the coming days.

Arsene Wenger attempted to draft him in as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas two years ago, but saw his advance knocked back.

United also came close to agreeing a loan deal for the 2007 Ballon d’Or winner last summer, but failed to convince then manager Jose Mourinho to let him move on.

Although Kaka still has much to prove with Real, he admitted that he is keen to move on:

“I want to leave. I think now is the right moment for me and for the club for me to leave amicably.” He said.

“Things are difficult for me now in the team, and the club knows what I want.”

Does Kaka still have what it takes to be a Premier League star?
