Chelsea '90 per cent' certain to land Real Madrid star Kaka

Kaka is '90 per cent' certain to join Chelsea if he cannot revive his Real Madrid career - according to a close ally of Bernabeu president Florentino Perez.

Inter Milan have been strongly linked with a move for the Brazil playmaker following the appointment of his compatriot Leonardo as Rafa Benitez's replacement.

However, Italian super agent Ernesto Bronzetti insists that Stamford Bridge is the only likely destination for a player who has long been admired by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Real deal: Chelsea are in pole position to sign Real Madrid playmaker Kaka

The Blues' own spending power has been questioned, but Bronzettiinsists Inter are in an even weaker position to fork out for the28-year-old.

'Kaka will not join Inter - I am sure of it,' said Bronzetti, whohas done business with Madrid money man Perez for 10 years. 'Inter willnot make these types of investments. Kaka cost €70m (£56million) andnow they won't demand under €50m (£43m).'

Bronzetti would be surprised if Kaka went anywhere at all given theeffort that Perez put in to make him his first signing - from AC Milan- after being re-elected as president back in June 2009.

But the one-time World Player of the Year, close to a return afterknee surgery in the summer, could struggle to get into Jose Mourinho'sside after the arrival of Mesut Ozil from Werder Bremen.

'I am the only Italian to know Florentino Perez very well,' said theagent. 'We are bound by a 10-year friendship. I talked with him a fewdays ago.

'Florentino is a bit stubborn and he would not accept losing a bet(on Kaka), it's the same for Maicon and (Diego) Milito, who will not goto Madrid.'

But if a move was inevitable? '(Inter) have a ruthless competitorcalled Chelsea. If he were to leave in June, he has a 90 per centchance of going to Chelsea and not Inter.'
