Kaká's move to AC Milan put on hold
Kaká’s proposed move back to AC Milan has been put on hold as the Serie A side are struggling to come up with the required funds.
The Italian giants are keen to lure Kaká back to the San Siro but they are unable to meet the financial demands of both Madrid and the player.
The Brazilian International cost Real Madrid €68.5 million when he signed in 2009 and his remaining three-year contract at the Bernabeu reportedly earns him €9 million a season.
The Rossoneri Sporting Director, Ariedo Braida, has admitted that the club have made little progress in their attempts to sign the 30-year-old playmaker.
Braida told Gazzetta dello Sport: “The situation is in stand-by, we will wait to see how we can resolve the problem that you already know about.
“Of course his return would make everyone happy, as Kaka is a lad we all care about and he made history with the Rossoneri. Obviously we’d be pleased to have him back with us.”
Real Madrid boss, Jose Mourinho, has stated that it would not be a problem for him if Kaká were to stay at the Bernabeu for another season.
He told reporters: “The important thing is that he thinks about his personal happiness when he makes a decision about his future. It is not a problem for me if he stays at Real Madrid.
“We will be happy if he decides to stay put, but we will also be satisfied if he decides to move on in his pursuit of happiness.
Kaká has only made 65 appearances for Madrid since 2009, scoring 20 goals, due to a long-standing left knee injury.
“We know each other well and have been through a lot. We had a season where he was being plagued by injury, and then he struggled to break into the first team. I know how he feels and what's on his mind,” Mourinho added.
Kaká spent six seasons in Italy, scoring 95 goals and making 46 assists during 269 appearances. He lead AC Milan to the Serie A title in 2004 and more notably, the Champions League title in 2007.
