It has become well known that Jose Mourinho would love to add 26-year old Spanish international David Silva to the Real Madrid squad. The versatile and creative midfielder has been impressive at Euro 2012 so far and is seen as the perfect replacement for Kaka.
Kaka has been hinting that he wants a move away from Madrid, and Mourinho is ready to let him go. The Madrid boss had been insistent that he would not sell Kaka, but he has fallen out of favour and will need to be replaced.
Silva’s dynamic style and goalscoring ability make him the number one target for Madrid. President Florentina Perez and the fans are in favour of signing the Manchester City man, but Roberto Mancini is adamant that he will not sell him. Silva is being urged to request a transfer and force Man City to put a price tag on the player, AS reports.
Real Madrid and Perez have pulled off this kind of move before with Luis Figo, Zidane and Ronaldo. Silva has previously declared that he is happy in Manchester and would stay with the club for years but you can never be sure in football.
Italian Tuttosport have reported a proposed deal with AC Milan involving a player plus cash deal with Kaka rejoining Milan and Kevin Prince-Boateng joining Madrid.
