Kaka insists Barcelona star Messi could handle Man City move

Ballon d'Or winner Kaka insists Barcelona star Leo Messi could handle a move to England.

The Argentine great has been linked with Manchester City amid talk of tension with the board.

Kaka told Sky Sports: "I don't think it will be a problem for him to play in the Premier League, or in a top club in a top three league. But that obviously depends on what he wants with his career.

"It's hard to see him play for another club, but he may feel, 'It's okay, it's time for me to change and I'll move for another experience and I'll be the best football player in the world for another team'.

"When (Cristiano) Ronaldo left Madrid we were sad that he left the club and many of them regret that Ronaldo left Real Madrid. But I think everyone understood that it was good for him with a new challenge, he needed a new challenge, he needed to move. It's okay, we are one of the best clubs in the world and we will continue. Real Madrid must rebuild."
