Pending his official unveiling after international duty, Brazilian superstar Kaka (or KaKA! if you’re Dave O’Brien) has agreed to a world-record transfer from A.C. Milan to Real Madrid. The final figure, about $94 million, significantly trumps the second largest transfer, Real Madrid’s purchase of Zinedine Zidane from Juventus for $75 million in 2001. It was far lower than the $150 million offered by Manchester City in January.
Real Madrid Is Reconstructing the Death Star: Florentino Perez took on the Real Madrid presidency just a few days ago, but he apparently is not one to dawdle. The architect of the “Galacticos” era is recreating its present day equivalent, beginning with a reported $93 million bid that has been accepted by A.C. Milan for Brazilian star Kaka.
Zinedine Zidane’s Son May Play for Spain: Real Madrid starlet Enzo Zidane has just turned 14-years-old and will receive his first international call-up at Under-15 level. Surprisingly for the son of a French legend, it will likely be for Spain.
