Russian side Rubin have offered Real Madrid €45 million for Brazilian football star Kaka.

­One of Spain’s leading sporting newspapers Marca has dedicated their front page to the unexpected news, claiming the Kazan team is ready to pay any salary he wants to world’s best player of 2007.

Rubin has already denied the information, calling the report “complete nonsense”.  

“Marca has no credibility. This is a typical tabloid. One shouldn’t trust such information. We are well aware of publications in the foreign press. I can say that this is complete nonsense. This information doesn’t correspond to reality,” Makism Lopukhov, Rubin’s press-secretary, told "

Kaka moved to Real Madrid from the Italian side AC Milan in the summer of 2009, with the transfer sum reaching €67 million.

However, injury problems have prevented the 28-year-old from displaying his best qualities in the Spanish capital.

Kaka has played only eight matches and scored two goals in the current La Liga season, lacking a place in Real’s staring lineup.

Coach Jose Mourinho usually uses German midfielder Mesut Ozil on the position of playmaker.

Kaka won the UEFA Champions League 2006/07 with AC Milan. He has 82 caps for Brazil, scoring 27 goals.
