Beckham helping LA Galaxy in Kaká move
LA Galaxy's David Beckham has attempted to convince former Real Madrid teammate Kaká to move to his employers in the MLS according to reports in the United States.
Tim Leiweke, president of AEG who own LA Galaxy, says Beckham introduced Kaká to him after the Brazilian revealed his interest in playing in the MLS.
"We're well aware of Kaka's interest in MLS, and we in turn have made it very clear to him that he's aware of our interest in him," said Leiweke.
"We have a great relationship with Real Madrid, and just as we worked through a player with them six years ago (Beckham), I'm absolutely convinced we could find the right deal this time, too.
"The guy who introduced us to this player is David Beckham. David has done the yeoman's work on our behalf at introducing us, getting him comfortable, getting his family comfortable, talking about L.A. and the organization," Leiweke said.
