Galatasaray reveal Kaka desire

Galatasaray are doing everything in their power to sign Brazilian playmaker Kaka from Real Madrid during the January transfer window.

The Turkish champions have been trailing the 30-year-old for some time, with the club's president Unal Aysal admitting in September they could make a move for Kaka if they qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase.

Fatih Terim's side have since advanced from Group H and the coach has revealed that the Brazil international, who last week suggested he was unhappy with his bit-part role at the Bernabeu, is his prime target.

Speaking after Cimbom's 3-1 win over Sivasspor on Saturday, Terim said: "The president asked me if I wanted to sign Diego Ribas or [Wesley] Sneijder. I told him I wanted Kaka."

And Aysal appears more than willing to grant Terim his wish, although he now has to convince Real to sell.

"My colleagues and I are working with all our powers to fulfill his desires," he said. "Terim said he needed a player so we must sign someone in January.

"We will do it as Terim is very important for us and we want him to be happy. Now all it needs is that the club are willing to sell us the player."
