KAKA UNSURE

Brazil's national team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has stated that he has not seen enough from Kaka to suggest that he is back to his best. The former Chelsea manager was on hand to witness the Brazilian midfielder play for AC Milan in the derby against Inter Milan.

They were beaten by their arch rivals 1-0 at the San Siro. Kaka played the full match, but he was not at his best. As a result, Milan slipped into the bottom half of the table. Rodrigo Palacio scored the only goal of the game late on in the encounter.

BACK ON FORM

Kaka returned to first-team action in the 1-1 draw for AC Milan with Barcelona in the Champions league. This was a great result for the Italian club considering that their form in the domestic league has not been that great. Kaka helped Milan get the 1-1 draw after providing the assist for Robinho, although his effort was cancelled by Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi later in the match. Kaka was signed from Real Madrid for a small fee in the summer. The Brazilian had grown frustrated with life at the Spanish club due to lack of first-team opportunities.

PIAZON WANST EXPERIENCE

Chelsea midfielder Lucas Piazon, who recently joined Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem on a loan deal till the end of the season, has said that he is hoping to gain a lot of first-team experience. The Brazilian midfielder has been regarded as the next Kaka.

However, he has dismissed the suggestions by saying that he is a completely different player to Kaka, but comparisons are unavoidable because he looks very like the former AC Milan midfielder. The 31-year-old is regarded as one of the best players of his generation. He won the FIFA Ballon d’Or award when he was playing for AC Milan.

Premier League tips

The bookmakers have made Manchester United the pre-season favourites to go on and win the Premier League again next season, with current odds of 9/4, which may seem slightly surprising to some football betting fans – given the shock departure of Alex Ferguson at the end of last season, the fact that Wayne Rooney may be set to join him and the fact that replacement manager David Moyes has no championship winning experience, but in fact there are good reasons why United should still be considered favourites for the title.

FUTURE UNCLEAR

There has been intense speculation over the future of Brazilian midfielder Kaka for a number of years now. He has been widely speculated to leave Real Madrid on a number of occasions, but the 31-year-old has managed to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu and fight for his place. However, the summer could finally see the Brazilian move away from the Spanish capital after intense rumours suggested that he could be on his way back to Brazil with Corinthians. Due to the Brazilian economy booming like never before, Brazilian clubs are able to afford star players and their enormous wages.

PSG CHASE MOURINHO

The French club Paris St Germain have been linked with a move for the Real Madrid manager José Mourinho for the last couple of months, but the owner of the club – Nasser Al-Khelaifi – has denied such rumours.

NO AC RETURN

The vice president of AC Milan, Adriano Galliani, has said that his club is not planning to sign Kaka and David Beckham during the mid season transfer window.
Milan was reported to be interested in buying these two superstars. But, Galliani has said that these reports are not true at all.

Beckham had played for Milan in 2009 and 2010 on loan. He featured for Milan in 29 matches during the two tenures and scored two goals.

REAL LOOK TO OFFLOAD

The Spanish club Real Madrid will once again be looking to offload the Brazilian midfielder Kaka in the January transfer window. The future of the Brazilian has always been speculation over the last few seasons prior to every transfer window.

KAKA SHOULD HAVE MOVED

The defender of Barcelona, Dani Alves, has said that his compatriot Kaka should not have continued playing for Real Madrid and should have made a move this summer. During the pre season transfer window, Kaka was reported to be approached by his former club AC Milan, but, the Brazilian international opted not to leave Madrid. As per Alves, Kaka should have joined Milan. He is a great player and he hasn’t been treated well during his tenure at Madrid so far.

MOU UNSURE ON KAKA

Real Madrid manager José Mourinho has said that he does not want to speculate on the future of the star midfielder Kaka, who has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernebeu in the summer. The 31-year-old former AC Milan midfielder has been linked with a reunion with the San Siro. He became one of the feared midfielders in the world during his time at the Italian club. However, he has struggled with a number of injuries since arriving at the Spanish club. He has been linked with a reunion with former AC Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti at the French club PSG.
