Real Madrid's Kaka lauds talent of Santos' Neymar

The 2007 Ballon d'Or winner hails his compatriot but says a possible move for the youngster to the Spanish capital is not for him to comment on
Real Madrid star Kaka has joined the ever-growing list of players to heap praise on Santos' Neymar.

The Santos youngster has been perennially linked with a move away from his home country to take a place at one of Europe's biggest clubs, with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea all closely linked with a move for the 19-year-old forward.

Speaking at an Adidas event in China, Kaka noted: "He is a very good player with a great future ahead and already has a lot of responsibility with the Brazilian national team. But it's not my business to decide the ups and downs."

Kaka, 29, has endured a difficult 12 months, losing his place in the Brazil national team, with a series of injuries having limited the former AC Milan man to just 14 league appearances for Madrid, though he did manage seven goals.
