Milan confirm Kaka deal
By Chris Donald
AC Milan have confirmed the signing of midfielder Kaka on a two-year contract from Real Madrid.
Reports over the weekend indicated that the Italians were interested in bringing the Brazilian back to the San Siro after he declared his intention to leave Madrid.
Following rumours that a deal had been agreed yesterday in the Spanish capital, Milan have released a brief statement on their official website, reports Football Espana.
“Adriano Galliani and Milan have concluded the great operation for Ricardo Kaka between 2.30 and 3.00 tonight,” read the posting.
“The agreement between the Rossonero club and Kaka is for two years, until June 30, 2015.”
Madrid are seen as having released Kaka on a free transfer in order to complete his return to San Siro.
The 31-year-old is expected to fly to Italy today to undergo a medical.
It is understood that the player has signed a provisional €4m-a-season contract, with bonuses, down from the initial €6m salary said to have been requested and the €10m he was on at Madrid.
Real Madrid spent €65m to sign Kaka from Milan back in 2009.
