The Brazilian Kaka has revealed his desire to grace the Premier League one day. The midfielder was speaking before Milan's Uefa Cup tie with Portsmouth at Fratton Park last night.
The 26-year-old is recognised as one of the best players in the game and won the 2007 World Footballer of the Year award. Now he has admitted he would like to play in Britain, telling Sky Sports News: "It is a very tough championship with a lot of big players and a lot of big teams. I know it is the best league in the world. So one day, maybe – I don't know when, but it would be great to play in the Premier League."
Manchester City have become one of the most high-profile clubs following their summer takeover and subsequent capture of Robinho, and Kaka admits he has taken an interest in matters at Eastlands since his fellow Brazilian's move to England.
"I have a lot of friends who are playing there so I am watching some games," he added. "I speak with Robinho sometimes about Manchester City." Two other Brazilians, Elano and Jo, are also plying their trade at Eastlands.
Kaka is also excited by the prospect of playing with the former England captain David Beckham. The Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder is set for a short stint with Milan during the American close season but Kaka hopes that period will be extended.
The Brazilian said: "When he comes, he will see what Milan is like and he can maybe stay a little bit more. I don't know, maybe until the end of the season or who knows, for another year?
"I like him, he is very positive," Kaka added. "He has a lot of talent with the ball, kicks it well and shoots nicely. It will be very nice to play with him."Reuse content
