Chelsea are favourites to land Kaka if the Brazilian is made available by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez. Kaka has been linked with Inter Milan following the appointment of his compatriot Leonardo as Rafa Benitez's replacement.

However, Italian super agent Ernesto Bronzetti insists that Stamford Bridge is the only likely destination for a player who has long been admired by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

"I am the only Italian to know Florentino Perez very well," said the agent. "We are bound by a 10-year friendship. I talked with him a few days ago.

"Florentino is a bit stubborn and he would not accept losing a bet (on Kaka), it's the same for Maicon and (Diego) Milito, who will not go to Madrid."

But if a move was inevitable?

"(Inter) have a ruthless competitor called Chelsea. If he were to leave in June, he has a 90 per cent chance of going to Chelsea and not Inter."
