Chelsea are being encouraged to bid for Real Madrid midfielder Kaka.

Marca says the 29-year-old will be allowed to leave the Spanish capital at the end of the season.

Kaka has suffered an injury plagued time at the Bernabeu since he arrived from AC Milan in 2009 for £56m in the same summer as Cristiano Ronaldo. The two Galacticos' fates have differed greatly with the former Manchester United man going from strength-to-strength while Kaka has been reduced to a squad player.

Real are ready to listen to offers of around £30m and they believe Chelsea, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain will be interested.
