Chelsea are reportedly preparing a massive £35 million bid for Real Madrid's Brazilian superstar Kaka.

The Blues' have long been linked with the Brazilian star player and it seems they are ready to break the bank for signing the highly talented midfielder. Chelsea manager Ancelotti told in a recent interview that the Blues' were not pursuing Liverpool striker Torres and now it looks justified

A source of the West London outfit informed that the Blues' are definitely preparing a bid for Kaka and are ready to offer players too in exchange.

The 2009-10 EPL and FA Cup champions are looking to add youth to their squad and if they can land Kaka that will be a vital signing for them. With the exit of Ballack and Joe Cole the Blues' midfield has become devoid of experienced players and Kaka could be the solution for that problem.

Although the Blues' had earlier been linked with a Kaka-Lampard swap deal, the rumours eventually fizzled out after Chelsea confirmed that Frankie was not moving anywhere.

Kaka had an unimpressive season at Real after he changed pastures from San Siro to Bernabeau in a record-breaking transfer fee. It seems that he is not interested in Real anymore and is looking for a way out. Real's new manager, the super-achieving Jose Mourinho too does not look very interested in keeping his Brazilian attacking midfielder.

The 28-year-old had an unimpressive World Cup at South Africa where he recieved severe criticism for his poor displays on the pitch.

But he could get back to his old form at Chelsea and achieve the same respect that he had before. His signing will also end Ancelotti's trouble's in finding a player suited to playing at the tip of his favourite diamond formation.

Chelsea are likely to place the bid within the next few days and it remains to be seen if we can see Kaka in Chelsea colours next season.
