London: Chelsea has been told by Real Madrid that they can land Brazilian superstar Kaka for a cut-price of 22 million pounds.

Real Madrid are ready to sell the midfielder after boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is no longer part of his plans.

The deal could be paid for by Chelsea selling Florent Malouda to Russian club Anzhi in January for 6 million pounds.

The 30-year-old cost Madrid 55 million pounds from AC Milan in the summer of 2009. But he has never settled through an injury ravaged spell and now Mourinho wants rid.

Kaka is back in Brazil deciding whether to join Chelsea, high-spending Paris St Germain or move back to Milan.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is the driving force behind bringing him to Stamford Bridge and has been constantly linked to him over the last two years.

The footballer is not happy with the situation, but a source close to Madrid said that he always had an interest in other clubs.

“Kaka has always interested other clubs and Mourinho has decided that he has far better options in midfield so the best thing to do is to move him on,” a leading daily quoted the source as saying.

“There has been no concrete offer but it is now known that the club would accept an offer in the region of 22 million pounds,” the source added.
