Manchester United plot £45m double swoop for Real Madrid's Mesut Ozil and Kaka


MANCHESTER UNITED could be about to step up their chase for midfield reinforcements this summer by making a £45m bid for Real Madrid's Mesut Ozil and Kaka.

Reports in Spain suggest that United will turn to the duo after missing out on Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas and Tottenham's Gareth Bale.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Ozil is ready to leave Real but whether the Madrid hierarchy is willing to let him go will depend on whether or not Bale arrives.
The paper also reports that Carlo Ancelotti's side is more than ready to cut ties with former AC Milan player Kaka but the Brazilian international is reluctant to leave Madrid.

Rumours of Manchester United's interest in Ozil surfaced last week after a source close to the situation told Spanish radio station Punta Pelota that a £40m offer was imminent.

But adding Kaka to the deal is a new development and it is even possible that Madrid are insisting on the Red Devil's taking Kaka as well if they really want Ozil.
Kaka recently stated his desire to stay at Madrid and prove himself but Real could be looking to cut their losses on the 31-year-old by packing him off to United.

The player's wages are thought to be a major barrier to any move, with few clubs willing to match what Kaka is being paid by Madrid for a player on the wrong side of 30, but Real hope that Manchester United may prove an interesting enough prospect to get Kaka to consider reducing his wage demands.

Kaka has largely failed to impress in Spain and has been plagued by injuries since making a £56m move from Milan in 2009.
