Kaka passes medical ahead of Real unveiling

Brazilian star Kaka successfully passed his medical with Real Madrid, the Primera Division giants have confirmed.

The 27-year-old had already completed a first set of medical tests with Madrid whilst on international duty in Brazil prior to the official announcement of his transfer from AC Milan on June 8.

Kaka, who Madrid have paid Milan a fee reportedly in the region of £56m for, will be presented by his new club at the Bernabeu on Tuesday evening at a ceremony starting at 2030 local time.

The former Sao Paulo player arrived in Madrid having just helped Brazil win the Confederations Cup in South Africa - being named player of the tournament in the process.

Kaka underwent various tests at the Sanitas La Moraleja Hospital in the Spanish capital, which he passed with flying colours according to the club's medical team.

Carlos Diez, Real Madrid's medical chief, said: ''The tests taken today show that he is a player in perfect condition to play football at the highest level as has been seen at the Confederations Cup.

''These test have been done to complement the ones done in Brazil. We have incorporated new protocols, such as a biomechanic study, which allows us to study the player and be able to prevent future injuries and optimise his performances.''
