Guangzhou Evergrande denies Kaka moveJuly 5th, 2012 - 8:37 pm ICT by IANS
Guangzhou (China), July 5 (IANS) Chinese super league club Guangzhou Evergrande has denied any links with Brazilian and Real Madrid star Kaka, saying the club have no plan to make changes among its foreign players.
“I don’t know how these reports came out, actually we have already registered all seven foreign players this season and we have no plan to change any of them,” the club president Liu Yongzhuo told Xinhua.
Earlier this week, Italian paper El Corriere dello Sport and Spain’s Diario AS both reported that Guanzhou were prepared to offer Kaka around 18 million euros a season on top of paying 25 million euros to Kaka’s current club, Real Madrid, for his transfer.
“According to the regulations of China Football Association (CFA), after the summer transfer window closed, we could not make any change among our foreign players until the end of 2012,” Liu added.
According to Liu, there will be no more room for Kaka at Evergrande, at least before the end of 2012 season. As 22-year old South Korean defender Kim Young-kwon joined the club two days ago, they have already filled all the seven slots for foreign players.
The Chinese Super League (CSL) defending champions are now enjoying a special clause in foreign players registration as they are the only team for China in the final eight of AFC Champions league. Guangzhou could register seven foreign players, two more than other clubs in CSL.
