Kaka hints at Premier League switch

AC Milan maestro Kaka has put English clubs on red alert after suggesting he would relish a move to the Premier League. The Brazilian playmaker, who was the target of an audacious £100 million bid by Manchester City during the January transfer window, has hinted that he would opt for a move to England when his playing days in Italy finally come to an end. “I like the Premier League a lot, so maybe that would be my choice when I leave Milan,” he said. The 26-year-old has now been plying his trade at the San Siro for six years since arriving from Santos in 2003, and is adored by the Milan fans, who proved one of the decisive factors in his decision to turn down City’s record-breaking offer. However, the Brazilian ace revealed that he keeps in touch with his fellow countrymen, who advise him on their Premier League experiences. “Whenever I can, I try to swap experiences with my friends playing in other countries and leagues," he said. “All the players that I’ve talked to that play in the Premier League, or used to play there, say it’s a tough league - tough, very fast and competitive.”

The news is likely to, again, interest Manchester City who may attempt to bag the Brazilian at the second attempt, while wealthily-backed Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United would in all likelihood ponder a move for the Champions League and World Cup winner should his services become available.
