Kaká returns volley

Following Manchester City’s wooing of AC Milan star Kaká with the Citizens rumoured to be offering upwards of £100m on his transfer and with a weekly wage of £500k, the Brazilian maestro has pledged his loyalty to the Rossoneri.

Speaking to AC Milan’s owner Silvio Berlusconi television network Mediaset he said:

“I want to grow old at Milan.”

“My aim is to become at some point in the future the captain of this team.”

Should Kaká join Manchester City, it will unite him with Brazilian teammate Robinho who came to club from Real Madrid in the final moments of the summer transfer season. However should this occur, Kaká’s spokesperson Diogo Kotscho might not be so well-received by Robinho. Speaking to Corriere dello Sport, Kotscho said:

“Kaka wouldn’t do anything based on money.”

“He would never do something like Robinho, who, just to earn more, contented himself with a solution that was not a winning one.”

In an interesting twist noted Football expert Gabrielle Marcotti told BBC Radio that City visit to Milan was to present an offer for goalkeeper Nelson Dida:

“As I understand it, they went to Milan supposedly under the ruse of talking about another player and in the course of the conversation they brought up Kaka and said they would be prepared to spend this much.”
