AC Milan's Kaka undergoes medical at Real Madrid's request

Brazil and AC Milan playmaker Kaka has undergone a medical examination at the request of Real Madrid, for whom the player is a main transfer target.

REUTERS - Brazil and AC Milan playmaker Kaka has undergone a medical at the request of Real Madrid, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said on Monday.

The CBF said on their website that Kaka, one of the Spanish club's main transfer targets, was examined in Recife, where Brazil face Paraguay in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday.

"The Brazilian team's technical staff agreed to a request from Kaka and the directors of Real Madrid and released the player to undergo routine exams at a clinic in Recife," said the statement.

"The CBF accepted the role of making the logistical arrangements for the exam, through the head of the medical department, Dr Jose Luiz Runco, who accompanied the player during the exams to which he was submitted."

Kaka, who converted a penalty in Brazil's 4-0 win in Uruguay on Saturday, has refused to discuss his future since joining up with the Brazil squad last Tuesday.

Brazil coach Dunga also asked the players to forget about transfers until after the Paraguay match, but he appeared to be swimming against the tide.

Globo television's website
said three Real Madrid directors plus the team doctor also accompanied the exams.

Kaka is also due to play for Brazil at the Confederations Cup in South Africa.
