Transfer news updates…
But first of all, feel free to download my e-book “The footsteps of a Legend – Ricardo Kaka” and find out all there is to know about this magnificent player, including stories and statements which have never been revealed before.
Milan are still hopeful of agreeing a January deal for Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, as agent Mino Raiola is set to present Milan’s latest offer for the troubled star. He is believed to be nearing the exit door at the Etihad Stadium after a series of below par Premier League displays and off-field misdemeanors.
According to Sky Sport, The Italian side will offer City €24 million in 6 installments, €4 million per each.
The deal may consist of a free loan with the option to sign Balotelli on a permanent transfer with a salary of €5 million, which would see him being tied to Milan for a 4.5 year contract.
If it is to be believed The Sun, at all, Balotelli has thrown a leaving party at his house for close friends last night. He reportedly told them he was off to the San Siro.
In addition, more Kaka talk, as the interminable story seems to get ready to go for the photo-finish. Milan are set to submit a final offer to Real Madrid in the region of around €3 million-€4 million, in desperate attempt to secure the Brazilian, as La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.
To spicy it all up, FIFA agent Simone Piccotti has claimed to be certain of Kaka’s return. “I’m 80% sure that Kaka will go to Milan”, he told Tuttomercatoweb. Even the Ringo biscuits have renewed the advertising videos with the Real Madrid midfielder, which could be another sign of his willingness to return to Italy.
