Corinthians Won't Throw Kaka A Bone

For now it seems that fading Brazilian superstar, Kaka, will remain at Real Madrid next season.

The 31-year-old former World Player of the Year found game time at the Bernabeu hard to come by under Jose Mourinho, and was courted by teams from Turkey and the USA last season.

But he preferred to remain in Madrid and fight for a place in Los Blancos’ starting line-up, or angle for an emotional return to the club where his star ascended, AC Milan.

Last week however, the Rossoneri claimed Kaka is too old and expensive to return to the San Siro, and this week, Brazilian club Corinthians have followed suit.

Linked to the graceful attacking midfielder of late, Corinthians have rejected the rumours outright, insisting that there will be no Brazilian homecoming for Kaka, at least as far they are concerned.

"There is nothing, it's just speculation," Corinthians deputy director Monteiro Alves told Gazeta Press, regarding the Kaka speculation.

"I don't know where that story came from, but it didn't start at Corinthians.

"He is an excellent player, no doubt about that, but we haven't even talked about him.”

Kaka’s agent, Tadeu Cruz, buried the rumours for good, telling Lancenet: “No chance, that’s not true.”

Real Madrid are waiting to confirm the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager, and perhaps Kaka feels he will have a fighting chance to play under the Italian, for whom he shone so brightly at Milan.

It will be interesting to see if Ancelotti retains his faith in his former golden boy, and whether or not the wily Italian can resuscitate Kaka’s flagging La Liga career.
