Kaká surprised by the speed of Ronaldo’s transfer

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Kaká has admitted he was surprised that Real Madrid swooped for Cristiano Ronaldo so soon after his own move to the Bernabéu.

Manchester United accepted an £80 million offer for Ronaldo from the Spanish giants on Thursday, only three days after Kaká completed his £62 million switch from AC Milan.

"I was quite surprised because everything was sorted so quickly," Kaká told Globo TV.

"It was a pleasant surprise, not a bad one. He is an excellent player who can bring a lot to the team.

"To have players who can decide a match on their own is very important and Cristiano can do that."

The amount of money being spent by Real for Ronaldo and Kaká has come in for strong criticism, but the Brazilian star has defended the policy.

Kaká added: "It is a political problem. (Real president) Florentino Pérez has his project, his way to invest. It is not something negative for football, but positive.

"The Barcelona president (Joan Laporta) has criticised us, but they are very strong.

"The way Real can be a competitive team again is to have an ambitious project like Florentino's."
