Real Madrid to offer Kaka, Higuain to Chelsea for Lampard, Cole
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is ready to send Kaka to Chelsea in exchange for Frank Lampard AND Ashley Cole. The Mail on Sunday says Chelsea face a fight to keep their Double-winning team together this week as former manager Mourinho intensifies his efforts to recruit Lampard and Cole for Real Madrid.
Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes, who is negotiating transfers for the Spanish club, is planning to visit London in a bid to persuade Chelsea to allow the England pair to leave.
Chelsea will do their utmost to retain Lampard and Cole, who signed four-year contracts in 2008 and 2009 respectively.
Real Madrid will raise the possibility of a player-exchange, with Brazil superstar Kaka, who worked with Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti at AC Milan, and Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain in the frame.
