Chelsea Madrid (Spain), July 1 (ANI): Brazilian star forward Kaka has admitted that he snubbed Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti because Real Madrid are ‘the biggest club in the world’.The 62-million-pound superstar, who was paraded before 50,000 adoring fans at the Bernabeu, confessed that he could have joined the Blues when Ancelotti tried to hijack the deal.

But according to Sun Sport, Kaka, 27, said: “I thanked him for everything he did for me in all the years we spent together at Milan and all the triumphs we lived.”"But I had made the decision a long time ago that if I left Milan I would only go to Madrid - and that meant I couldn’t join him at Chelsea,” he added.The Brazil superstar knew his days at Milan were numbered when the San Siro giants gave him permission to speak to Manchester City back in January.

“After the season, because of the financial crisis, Milan were ready to let me go. I had offers but my desire was always to play at the Bernabeu,” Kaka said.Kaka insisted there will not be any problems with winger Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be presented on Monday after his world-record 80 million pound move.
