Real Madrid playmaker Kaka has labelled Los Blancos the club of his dreams and admits he is having 'a lot more fun' at the Santiago Bernabeu than he did at AC Milan.
The Brazilian superstar joined Real president Florentino Perez's 'spectacular sporting project' in the summer in a stunning £59million deal after spending six years with the Rossoneri.
Kaka was criticised in some quarters for succumbing to the offer of more money in the Spanish capital, though he has cited his rejection of both Manchester City and Chelsea over the past 12 months as perfect examples of why he is not motivated by money.
Instead the former Sao Paulo ace admits that it was a dream to join Real and is adamant they were the only club he would have left the San Siro for. "Madrid is a great club," he told Cadena Cope radio station. "I could have gone to any team if it was a matter of money, but I always dreamed about playing here. That's exactly what I told (Carlo) Ancelotti when he wanted me to sign for Chelsea.
"Manchester City made a spectacular offer and it was the first time Milan opened it's doors to sell me. Fans wanted me to stay and I did.
"I realised it wasn't time to leave and my wife and family helped me make the decision. If there was a day that I ever left Milan it would be to come to Madrid.
The 27-year-old has netted four goals in 16 games in all competitions since his switch to Manuel Pellegrini's men, but insists he is enjoying his football more then ever having been liberated by his move to Spain. "The Calcio isn't as strong as it used to be before the corruption cases," he said of the standard of Italy's Serie A.
"The tax matter also plays a role. Football there is very tactical and it taught me a lot, but I have a lot more fun now."
