Rossoneri to reach agreement on personal terms with former star.
AC Milan are set to step up their bid to bring back Brazilian midfielder Kaka after their latest offer for CSKA Moscow playmaker Keisuke Honda was rejected.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri submitted a new proposal to the Russian club with an initial offer of €3m, although various bonuses would see the fee rise to around €4m.
With the 27-year-old set to become a free agent in December, Milan are keen to wrap up a more immediate deal in order to have him available for the Champions League, as opposed to waiting until January.
However, CSKA released a statement on Friday evening which again ruled out the possibility of Honda leaving the club before the transfer deadline, which in turn has ensured Milan will now focus their attention on striking a deal with Real Madrid.
Speculation in the Italian media has suggested that the Spanish giants are willing to allow Kaka to leave for free, but the problem arises over the 31-year-old’s contract demands.
While the length has been agreed on a two-year deal, Milan are still hoping that the Brazilian reduces his demands further as he currently earns around €10m per year at Madrid.
Kaka revealed earlier this week that he is keen on leaving Spain in order to find regular first-team football, while Milan can offer him that they are also searching for reinforcements in midfield after selling Kevin-Prince Boateng to Schalke on Friday.
The club legend will also be available in Europe, and as Milan continue to try and solve their issue of the number 10 role, it would appear that Kaka is now their primary target.
