Kaká to Real!

It has been reported in several media outlets all over the world that Kaká will officially be announced as the newest Real Madrid signing this evening. He has apparently passed a physical in Brazil and will speak at a press conference in Brazil tonight. He will not be officially introduced in Madrid until June 30, after Brazil has finished at the Confederations Cup.

The first Galactico signing of the new Galactico 2.0 era under new Real prez Florentino Perez, Kaká will definitely fit in well into Pellegrini’s 4-4-2 system. Now that this signing is apparently out of the way, Real can focus on some of the other big signings that are rumored, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Franck Ribery, Xabi Alonso, David Villa and David Silva.

Also, Negredo has been re-bought by Real from Almeria for the bargain price of €5 million. He was sold to Almeria last year with an option to re-buy, and with Negredo finishing 6th in La Liga with scoring last season with 19 goals, it’s great to have him back. While it’s rumored that he is back with Los Galacticos only to be sold off again, possibly in a swap with Xabi Alonso of Liverpool, this 23-year old product of the Real Madrid system should be reconsidered as a major part of the plans, as he has a chance to become a major star.

But, for now, ¡Bienvenidos, Kaká!
