The agent of Brazilian superstar Kaka has admitted that his client would consider a move from AC Milan to Manchester City in the future.
The Citizens have made known their desire to sign some of the world's leading players, having seen their coffers swelled by an imminent takeover by the Abu Dhabi United Group.
Kaka's agent, Diogo Kotscho, told The Observer: "Kaka would prefer a club like Chelsea, Real Madrid or Milan, but we never know.
"This season Manchester City do not have a team to win the Champions League. Maybe next season they can get into that competition, they have the prospects to be good enough.
"What they need to have is a big project to win the Premier League and the Champions League. It's not just about Kaka, they will only get the very best players if they attain this level.
"It was the same with Chelsea a few years ago, they had to prove themselves too.
"I think Manchester City are headed in the right direction, but they have big work to do.
"It's no easy thing to reach the same level as the biggest clubs in the world and it's not just about money.
"You have to spend it properly and build a great team, but in two or three years they can be there if they do the right things."
