Man City never big enough to bid for me: KakaJune 28th, 2009 - 3:04 pm ICT by ANI
Johannesburg, June 28 (ANI): Brazilian football star Kaka has told Manchester City they were never a big enough club to tempt him to the Premier League.
The Brazilian superstar, who was the subject of a massive bid from the Eastands club in January, chose to see out the season at AC Milan and then moved to Real Madrid in a record-breaking 60-million-pounds deal.According to News of The World, Kaka has spent the last two weeks with Robinho as part of the Brazil squad at the Confederations Cup in South Africa - where they will play the USA in today’s final.
He explained that City would have needed a more illustrious history and safer long-term financial backing to attract him to England.
Kaka, 27, insisted he will never regret his decision to join Real Madrid after the return of president Florentino Perez, who brought in the Galacticos era of David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and Robinho. He will be joined at the Bernabeu next season by World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I know I made the correct choice going to Real. To be alongside players who can decide a match on their own is very important and Cristiano can do that,” he said. (ANI)
