Kaka has reportedly agreed terms with AC Milan - and that could smooth the way for Luka Modric to complete his move to Real Madrid.
The Brazilian has been linked with a move back to the San Siro, where he spent six years before moving to Madrid for a fee of £59m in 2009.
And although Milan are yet to agree a fee with Madrid for the 30-year-old, SportMediaset have claimed that personal terms have already been negotiated.
That could impact on the protracted saga of Modric's proposed move to the Bernabeu.
Tottenham have refused to sell the Croatian international unless Madrid meet their asking price, which is thought to be around £40m.
The Spanish side have so far failed to do so, but if they can recoup around £12m for Kaka they may be willing to spend more on Modric.
