***Editor's Note: Interesting news, and I've seen it floating around a lot in the last couple of days. What do you all think? --Gabe
Hello Friends!I read this news in Portuguese on Brazilian news site Globo Esporte but will try to summarize and translate the article to the best of my ability (if any of you speak Portuguese, see the attached link). Editors, feel free to comment as to whether you believe this is tabloid nonsense or legitimate news.
French newspaper L'Equipe divulged this Saturday that PSG President Nasser al-Khelaifi met with Gonzalo Higuain and Kaka last week to discuss a move to the French side this summer. According to the newspaper, both players are seen as priorities for reinforcing the French squad next season.
Little used by Jose Mourinho in the Merengue line-up (he only started 16 games in 2011/2012) and one of the highest salaries on Real Madrid, Kaka could have his exit facilitated since the Spanish club won't demand an elevated transfer fee to release the Brazilian. The tabloid has announced that Kaka has requested a meeting with PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti, with whom he shared great moments in Milan.
With relation to Higuain, PSG might encounter some more resistance from Real. As opposed to Kaka, the Argentine attacker has a place in Mourinho's plans as well as the fans' hearts. His reason for leaving, therefore, would be the constant competition with Karim Benzema for the starting striker position. If Higuain does not choose PSG, another name the French club are tossing around is that of Uruguayan/Liverpool international Luis Suarez.
