Brazilian midfielder Kaka admits he is flattered by rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

Milan’s involvement in the match-fixing scandal in Italy has seen the club kicked out of next season’s Champions League and leaves them with a 15-point deficit for the coming season. The club are desperately trying to retain their star players, but it is inevitable that they will have fend off interest for the likes of Kaka from European rivals.

Kaka, who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, said he would be happy to join the Spanish club, provided Milan agree to his departure.

“I’m happy that Real have shown an interest and I’m flattered by the fact they want me,” he told AS.

“But I’ll sign for the Spanish club only if they arrive at an agreement that can satisfy both myself and Milan, especially the latter.

“My family and I feel good at Milan and that’s the reason why I renewed my deal with Rossoneri until 2011.

“I don’t want to force the situation and I want this to be clear for all the world.”
