Real Madrid have not given up hope of luring Milan playmaker Kaka to the Spanish club.
Kaka was a target for Real during the summer, but Milan rejected Real’s overtures and persuaded him to sign a new long-term contract.
However, Real sporting director Predrag Mijatovic remains confident that they can bring Kaka to Madrid.
“We tried to convince Kaka to leave Milan last summer, but we did not finalise an agreement as he wanted to honour his contract with his current club,” Mijatovic told AS.
“In any case, we will try again in the future because he is an excellent player and he would be a perfect target for us,” added the former Fiorentina striker.
“It will not be an easy operation, but I am confident that in the end everything will fall into place.”
Mijatovic also revealed that he hopes that Antonio Cassano will apologise to Real coach Fabio Capello after the pair had a bust-up over the the former Roma player’s peripheral role this season.
“I really hope he speaks to Capello and apologises for his behaviour because he was disrespectful,” added Mijatovic.
“We will wait and see what happens in the next few days, but now everything depends on Cassano.”
