Manchester United's sale of Wayne Rooney could lead to Kaka moving 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.

Manchester City and Chelsea are also keen on Rooney, but may be alerted by Kaka's situation should they miss out on their first target.

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.
