Kaka looks set to join Real Madrid for £56m

Kaka is reported to have undergone and passed a medical with Real Madrid clearing the way for a £56m transfer from AC Milan to the Bernabeu. According to the Daily Mail, Real's doctor travelled to Recife where the 27-year-old playmaker is currently on international duty with Brazil.

A statement from the Brazilian Football federation confirmed that Kaka had met with representatives from the La Liga club: "The technical commission of the Brazilian national team assisted in the request of Kaka and of Real Madrid's management and released the player to carry out routine exams in a clinic of Recife."

A number of press agencies claim that Kaka is set to give a press conference later this evening if Milan agree to the transfer. The signing of the former Sao Paolo player would be a remarkable coup for Florentino Perez. The newly elected Real Madrid president is in his second term of office and the arrival of Kaka could herald the start of a new generation of Galactacos.
