AC Milan drop hint over possible return of Real Madrid midfielder Kaka
Wednesday 25 July 2012
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has dropped a strong hint that
the Serie A club will bid for the services of their former star
The Brazilian playmaker has struggled for consistency at Real Madrid since he left the San Siro for £50.7million in 2009.
The Ballon d'Or winner was on the sidelines as Los Merengues beat Real Oviedo 5-1 yesterday in a pre-season friendly, and having also failed to make the squad for a tour of the USA, speculation is now rife over his long-term future at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real assistant manager Aitor Karanka told AS: "We decided he would stay in Madrid. Kaka and the club are working to find a good solution for all parties."
Los Blancos are reportedly keen to recruit Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric as the Brazilian's replacement, with the London club reportedly holding out for a £40million fee.
Kaka, who was part of Milan's Champions League winning side of 2007, scored 70 goals in six seasons with the Rossoneri and Galliani revealed his unwavering desire to bring the midfielder back to Italy.
He told the Gazzetta dello Sport: "Some loves never end, they may go away for a long time, but they always return."
The 30-year-old scored five Primera Division goals last season as Real Madrid wrested the championship back from Barcelona with a record-breaking 100-point haul.
