David Beckham: "Kaka Turned Down Manchester City's Offer For Real Madrid"

K ShakranSenior Analyst IJanuary 20, 2009

AC Milan's newly acquired midfielder on loan, David Beckham, disclosed that Kaka rejected Manchester City's historical offer because of his aching desire to join Spanish giants Real Madrid.

"Kaka wants to go to Real Madrid and not to City," Beckham reportedly said to Spanish Publican AS.

The 32-year-old English midfielder believes some of the Spanish giants' officials contacted Kaka over a potential transfer this upcoming summer.

"I think he will become a Real player in June," Beckham said. "I think someone has called him and that Kaka has made his decision."

AS reported last week that the Brazil hitman asked Beckham, who played for Real between 2003 and 2007, for information about the Spanish champions.

Beforehand, former Real president Ramon Calderon, who handed in his resignation days ago, pledged to land the 26-year-old during his tenure.  

Los Blancos are keen to remain interested in Kaka even after the departure of Calderon.

"This is the best moment to recruit Kaka, he is the player who would benefit the team the most," an anonymous Real Madrid source, told the newspaper.

After all, Real were on the brink to capture a 23-year-old Portuguese superstar last summer. Pursuing Kaka should be no different.
