Chelsea FC Transfer Rumours: Kaka's Mother Claims That Family Will Be Moving To London

Yes, we're at the point where we take Twitter comments from relatives of random players and draw silly conclusions from them. That's what you get when you lose at Old Trafford, Chelsea. Silliness.

Anyway, now that Real Madrid have acquired Nuri Sahin from Borussia Dortmund, Kaka's days in the Spanish capital appear to be drawing to a close, and now his mother Simone Leite is claiming that she'll be living in London starting next August.

We are going to be in London next season where we will be preaching the word of God. We will be there from August - I can tell you.

Why does that matter? Mostly because Kaka brings his family wherever he's playing, so if his mother's in London so too is Kaka. And only one London team can afford him, which leads us to suspect that this was Ms. Leite's way of saying that the Brazilian will be plying his trade at Stamford Bridge next year.

Or it could be a load of garbage. Who knows. What we do know is that Chelsea have been more than a little deficient in the midfield passing game this season, and that Kaka would be a huge help there. It's unclear how much acquiring him would cost the club - Madrid will surely want to recoup a large part of their silly purchase figure - and whether that money could be better spent elsewhere.

One thing's for certain, though: This is going to be a really interesting summer.
