Boateng out and Kaka in at Milan?

Real Madrid have expressed an interest in signing Milan’s Kevin-Prince Boateng in a deal that could see Kaka sent back to the Rossoneri as a makeweight.

The Spanish giants, aware of Milan’s willingness to discuss the availability of their top players due to financial concerns, could be ready to take advantage with a move for the Ghanaian midfielder.

Kaka, who won the Champions League with Milan before a €65m switch to Madrid, has failed to impress since moving to Spain after a spate of injuries. Coach Jose Mourinho, the ex-Inter boss, could sacrifice Kaka back to Milan in order to sign Boateng.

The Rossoneri have already resisted Paris-Saint Germain’s big-money move for Thiago Silva, but their acceptance to undergo talks have led to speculation that other important players could be sold.  Receiving a hefty fee for Boateng while appeasing the fans with Kaka’s return could be a way for Milan to raise funds.

Alternatively, Benfica’s Axel Witsel may be seen as Boateng’s replacement if a swap deal with Kaka proves too complicated.
