The Brazil and Milan playmaker Kaka has backed Fabio Capello to win trophies with England – and hinted that he might consider a move to the Premier League in the future.

"I don't think there is any doubt that Fabio Capello is a very fine manager," said the Brazilian. "I believe he can win a lot with the England team in the time he spends as the national team manager."

Kaka, the world player of the year, has also expressed his admiration for English clubs, especially their performances in the Champions League and hinted he may consider a move to England in the future.

"In the last five or six years, English teams have improved a lot and they are consistently at a high level now," he said. "Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are all excellent and any of them could win it. I believe all the four English clubs have a great chance of making it all the way to the final in Moscow."

And on his future at the San Siro, the 25-year-old said: "I am very happy here in Milan but if one day I had to leave I would like to play in another big European team. The biggest clubs are in Italy, England and Spain so it would be in one of these countries, although it is clear they play differently in these places.

"I think these three championships are the most important in the world at the present moment, all very good and competitive."

In Spain, Barcelona are clinging to the hope that they can deprive Real Madrid of the Spanish league title despite spurning yet another opportunity to close the gap. Given the chance to crank up the pressure after Bernd Schuster's Real side were held 1-1 at Mallorca on Saturday, the Catalan side managed only a goalless draw at home to Getafe the following day.

"It seems like no one wants to win this league," the Barça president, Joan Laporta, said. "I still think we can win the league. It is a very unpredictable title race and we can't throw in the towel just yet."
