Kaka impressed by Real Madrid midfielder Tchouameni; makes Rodrygo appeal to Tite

Kaka admits he's been impressed by Aurelien Tchouameni at Real Madrid.

The Ballon d'Or winner feels Tchouameni can replace Casemiro after his departure for Manchester United.

Kaka told Marca: "I love this player because he is very young but he has a huge personality and he is playing very well. I have to admit that I had doubts because Casemiro was a very experienced player and both Tchouaméni and (Eduardo) Camavinga have little experience but they are handling the pressure of playing for Real Madrid admirably."

Kaka also commented on Rodrygo Goes' progress.

He said: "Well, he's phenomenal. There is still discussion in Brazil if he should go to the World Cup and I am clear that he has to be on the list. I myself went to a World Cup when I was 20 years old and had not yet left Brazil while he is already a star at Real Madrid.

"It is also an experience that will come in handy for his professional growth."
