Hurrah. Perez Era has really started to kick in now. Kaka is finally a Real Madrid player and quite frankly, in terms of Champions League footbal, I think only the 4rth player in Real Madrid’s team at the moment who should be considered pure world class.

The Spanish media have been claiming the deal, worth approximately EUR65 million, had been as good as done for some time, but it has now finally been confirmed by Real Madrid and AC Milan.

Real Madrid’s statement read:

“Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, Kaka, is a Real Madrid player after an agreement was reached with AC Milan. The Brazilian footballer has now successfully passed all medical tests. Kaka has signed a contract with Real Madrid for the next six seasons.”

Meanwhile, AC Milan’s statement read:

From next season, Kaka will play at Real Madrid. Milan thank Kaka the man and the great champion for his decisive contribution to the many victories over the last six years.

“It will be very difficult to fill the void that Kakawillleave, as he is a shining example of commitment and professionalism. A. C. Milan, on behalf of the Rossoneri managers, players and supporters, send him the most cordial and affectionate wishes for the continuation of his sporting career.”

Kaka is going to give a big boost to Real Madrid in the midfield which obviously means that Van Der Vaart and Guti are now a surplus to the requimrements and it is likely that now, Real Madrid will try to get Ribery by exchanging the two. For goodness sake Perez, DO NOT SELL SNIEJDER. If he does, it will come
