Real Madrid wants to replace Kaka with Manchester City star David Silva
Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho reckons the Manchester City midfielder David Silva will be the perfect replacement for Kaka, who will be joining Paris Saint Germain this summer.
The 30-year-old Brazil international, Kaka is finally opting for an away move. Speculation about Kaka’s transfer has been in the football market since Jose Mourinho became the manager of Real Madrid.
However, Kaka showed impressive form for Real Madrid and finally earned a spot in the first team. Jose Mourinho even hailed Kaka to be in his best form this season.
Nonetheless, David Silva is among the few men in Europe whose performance can overshadow the success Kaka has enjoyed this season. The 26-year-old Spaniard, David Silva has scored 8 goals and provided 19 assists in 49 appearances for Manchester City last season.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is all praise for the stunning form David Silva has found with the Eastlands. Roberto Mancini has even labelled David Silva as the cornerstone behind Manchester City’s first Premier League title in 44 years.
Presently, David Silva has only two years left on his contract with Manchester City. Club insiders have informed that Manchester City has not yet approached David Silva regarding a contract extension. Therefore, other clubs can take advantage of this situation by offering better contracts.
Roberto Mancini understands losing David Silva will be catastrophic for Manchester City’s success in the future. The Spain international, who was also in the run for Ballon d’Or (Footballer of the Year), knows he is important figure with the Eastlands.
Interestingly, David Silva is already in Madrid to prepare with Spain’s squad for the upcoming Euro 2012. Real Madrid tried to sign in David Silva when Valencia put him in the market in 2010.
Real Madrid scouts have reported to Jose Mourinho that David Silva is one of the most dangerous and in-form players in the Premier League. At Real Madrid, Jose Mourinho wants David Silva’s help in defending the club’s first league title in a long time.
However, Roberto Mancini has similar demands from David Silva. According to reports from Madrid, Jose Mourinho is waiting for the transfer window to open so he can place a bid on the versatile attacking midfielder, David Silva.
Real Madrid managed to lure Cristiano Ronaldo out of Manchester United three years ago. Jose Mourinho hopes he can pull off a similar stunt with Manchester City. Both Manchester City and Real Madrid are well off financially. Therefore, money won’t be an issue here. Self-satisfaction would be.
