Galliani Awaits €110m City-Chelsea Kaka War

Post  dicanio_michael on Sun Sep 07, 2008 12:31 am

Transfer stories about Kaka have permeated the English and Italian press almost all summer, with Chelsea being the club mainly associated with the Brazilian superstar.

In July it was reported that Chelsea had made a €100m bid for the Brazilian and, although this wasn’t confirmed, Milan transfer guru Adriano Galliani did reveal that the club had rejected a “conspicuous” offer from Chelsea.

Since then, there have been numerous figures bandied about by the press, with the Italian media even stating that Chelsea were prepared to fork out a whopping €150m for the midfielder.

However, on deadline day on Monday, there was a stunning development in England, which could have huge implications on European football.

Arab billionaire Dr Sulaiman Al-Fahim and his Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG) have taken control of Manchester City, and have already poured millions into the club to steal Real Madrid star Robinho from under Chelsea’s noses.

Dr Sulaiman is now planning some other huge purchases as he tries to make City the best club in the world, and he has been heavily linked with a world record offer next summer for Kaka.

Upon hearing of Dr Sulaiman’s intentions, Galliani joked that he "now wants to see who reaches €110m first" out of Man City and Chelsea.

Kaka is the current European and World Footballer of the Year, although he has had an injury-hit calendar year in 2008.
