The 27-year-old had already completed a first set of medical tests with Madrid while on international duty in Brazil prior to the official announcement of his transfer from AC Milan.

Kaka, who Madrid have paid Milan a fee reportedly in the region of £56 million for Kaka, who was instrumental as Brazil won the Confederations Cup.

He hopes to add to his trophy tally at Real Madrid, and says the Spanish giants were always a more tempting option than Manchester City, who tried to sign the player in January.

"I was very flattered by Manchester City's interest in January but it is just a project at the moment. And with projects sometimes you don't know how long the investment will be there for," he said.

"Lots of smaller clubs have periods of spending big money. But suddenly the investment stops when the owner decides to do something else. Or sometimes it stops because of other reasons like a failing economy.

"Things can be great one moment and not so great the next moment. The organisation can collapse like a pack of playing cards. I felt the time was right for a change and Real Madrid is the club for me.

"It was not about a difference of quality between the Primera Liga and the Premier League. Real will always be a big club. Nobody can take away their history and their nine European Cups."
