Rossoneri want to re-sign Brazilian but avoid a hefty transfer fee…
Milan are hoping to re-sign Kaka from Real Madrid on a one-year loan deal, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. The Brazilian looks set to end his unhappy spell in Spain this summer and was left out of Real’s opening pre-season friendly match with Oviedo.
Milan CEO Adriano Galliani hinted to fans that a move to bring the 30-year-old back to the San Siro could be on the cards, before confirming that talks have already taken place.
But Milan can only afford Kaka with Real’s help and they are only willing to offer the playmaker €5 million rather than the €10 million he currently earns at the Bernebeu.
However, Spanish media clam the contrary – According to Marca, and Milan have offered €3 million.
The Rossoneri also hope that Madrid boss Jose Mourinho and president Florentino Perez will allow Kaka to return on a one-year loan deal as the Italians cannot get close to his €20 million asking-price. Galliani is expected to arrange a meeting with Perez next week to attempt to thrash out a deal.
According to the Italians press, Kaka’s saga may end until the weekend with the Brazilian joining Milan on the USA Tour.
In the meantime, Milan have revealed their official shirt numbers for 2012-13 and Kaka’s old No 22 is still up for grabs. The Diavolo have been linked with their former hero and Antonio Nocerino’s decision to let go of the 22, for Gennaro Gattuso’s No. 8, will only intensifyrumours that a move is possible given that was Kaka’s previous squad number at the club.
Alessandro Nesta’s No. 13 has been given to new signing Francesco Acerbi, while Clarance Seedorf’s 10 has been inherited by Kevin Prince Boateng.
Alexandre Pato has swapped his No. 7 for Pippo Inzaghi’s No. 9.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s 11 is unassigned following his switch to Paris Saint-Germain, while Riccardo Montolivo will wear the 18.
