Real Madrid No2 Aitor Karanka has confirmed the prospect of selling Kaka and replacing him with Tottenham ace Luka Modric. Kaka has already been informed by Real coach Jose Mourinho that he won't be a first-choice this new season.

Karanka told AS: "We decided he would stay in Madrid. Kaka and the club are working to find a good solution for all parties."

Asked about Modric, he added: "Which club would not want a player like him?

"He is an outstanding footballer and had a great tournament (Euro 2012). It is clear that he would fit in Madrid."
