Rooney sale could bring Chelsea, Man City target Kaka to England
The Daily Mail says the Brazil playmaker had further reason to fear for his Bernabeu future after hearing his boss Jose Mourinho admit he would be interested in Rooney.
And while Kaka and the England striker are different types of players, incorporating Rooney into an already stellar side would give even fewer opportunities for creative players to muscle in.
The route to Eastlands may be difficult given that the 28-year-old turned down City in January 2008. But Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti would be keen to work with Kaka again after getting the best out of him during their time together at AC Milan.
