Everton have finished 5th for the last 2 seasons and Simon Hopper thinks the Toffees are good value to be near the top of the tree again this time – see his low-down on all the contenders and recommended bets here.

Kaka has revealed that he knew as early as January that he would move from Milan to Real Madrid.

“It wasn’t exactly Florentino (Perez, Madrid president) who called, because he wasn’t the president at the time,” Kaka told AS.

“For me it was a surprise all the fuss they created around it.

“It was the first time Milan wanted to sell me. (Milan president Silvio) Berlusconi assured me that it was only for financial reasons.

“For me it was great to see the fans outside my house showing their support for me not to leave.

“They were days of a lot of emotion, but I knew that everything was already decided.”

Kaka also admitted that Perez made several attempts to sign him during the Real president’s earlier galacticos era.

“There was a first attempt when I arrived at Sao Paulo. It didn’t work and it was then that I moved to Milan,” said Kaka.

“Whenever I received offers from whatever team I always passed to Milan the responsibility of deciding on my departure. They were a club I loved and at which I was always happy.

“In six years there were offers, including some from Real Madrid. But Milan decided to open the door for me this year. First with (Manchesetr) City, but I then told them that I would only leave to go to Real Madrid.”
