'Kaká should've gone to Real Madrid in 2002'

Sunday, October 3, 2010

Wagner Ribeiro, former agent of Kaká, has revealed how close was the Brazilian to sign for Real Madrid before signing for AC Milan eight years ago.

Kaká eventually joined the Spanish giants from Milan for £62 million in 2009.

"I went to Milan after being contacted, but Leonardo said they never needed Kaká because they had Rui Costa and Rivaldo," Ribeiro told UOL Esporte.

"I waved goodbye to Milan and went straight to Madrid, where we agreed a fee of $7 million, and that he would have been loaned out to Getafe.

"After leaving the appointment, I was interviewed by Spanish newspaper Marca, which I said that the transfer was all done. But when Milan's executives read the interview they called me back immediately and we closed a deal."
