Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti has backed their bid for Real Madrid star Kaka.

Kaka is currently out of action following surgery and it's uncertain whether he'll get back into Jose Mourinho's team.

Speaking to Rai, Zanetti said: "We are speaking about a great champion. He would be welcomed well by an already strong group.

"I know that you have been talking about an eventual transfer to Inter. I have learnt of it through the newspapers.

"Champions are always accepted well and they know how to play together so I exclude that there could be any difficulties with Kaka and Sneijder playing together."
