Kaka joined Real Madrid for a world record transfer fee
Speculation that Kaka on his way to Real Madrid has ended. Kaka has revealed that he has joined spanish giant Real Madrid on late Monday during a press conference in Recife, Brazil. The 27-year-old Brazilian have been signed for around £59m ($94.05m), which beats the world record transfer fee of £46.7m ($75.3m) paid by Real to Juventus for Zinedine Zidane in 2001.
Speaking at a press conference in Brazil, Kaka said: "I can officially say I'm a Real Madrid player. My professional link with AC Milan finishes now, but my sentimental link will never end." Major news media has feature Kaka's transfer to Real Madrid as their headlines. Kaka also revealed that the move to Real Madrid is also a decission to help Milan financially. The current world financial crisis has also affected Milan and the opportunity to cash in from the sale of Kaka to ease the club financial burden are most welcome by the club management and Kaka himself.
According to Kaka, Real Madrid is putting a competitve team together for next season. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, David Villa and Franck Ribery have all been linked with the Spanish club. Perez has the ambition to ptu together an all stars team to wrestle back the premiera liga title from Barcelona as well as winning the European Champions League next season.
If Perez successfully gather all the talented players on his wanted list, Real Madrid will surely be a tough opposition for any team provided all of the stars are able to gel together on the pitch. Titles are won on the pitch with positive result not on paper for the players a team have. However, I believed the team building around Kaka will go far in both domestic and European competitions.
