The 24-year-old is rated as one of the most promising footballer’s in the world.
“Selling Kaka is a tremendous blow,” Dunga told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Ricky guaranteed the changes of rhythm, which are fundamental in a great team.
“You cannot replace a player like Kaka and often you regret it,” he added before recommending Hernanes.
“First of all, he is a great defender, powerful and quick. Second, he does not suffer in one against ones. It’s a quality that makes the difference.
“I have a weakness for the second quality. He has the determination of Rino Gattuso and the feet of Andrea Pirlo. Buy him quick.”
