I would suggest that you use ItemClick event of RadMenu as it is fired every time an item is clicked. You can check RadMenu Events
topic for more details on its usage.
Additionally, you could take a look at our EventToCommandBehavior
which will allow you to handle the ItemClick event in the ViewModel.
I hope this will be helpful.
