Brazilian will not return to San Siro this summer despite speculation to the contrary.
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has ruled out a return for Real Madrid midfielder Kaka this summer.
The Brazilian international left the club back in 2009 but has struggled for form and fitness since his switch to the Spanish capital.
As a result, he has fallen down the pecking order over the last three years and has been subject to interest from his former club over the last few transfer windows.
Talk intensified in January that a return was a real possibility, as club owner Silvio Berlusconi has never been shy to reveal his desire to see his former favourite return to San Siro.
However, Milan instead turned their attention to Mario Balotelli as they continue their new strategy of acquiring younger prospects as they build for the future whilst also keeping their finances in order.
This is reflected in Galliani’s latest comments as he moved to dismiss rumours that the club are ready to reignite their interest.
“Kaka has very high wages and is now 31, so I can rule out any move to Milan,” he told legaseriea.it as reported by Sky Sports.
Speculation was rife after Berlusconi had asked coach Massimiliano Allegri to return to a 4-3-1-2 system that suited Kaka’s attributes for next season, but Milan have already acquired 21-year-old midfielder Riccardo Saponara from Empoli to play in the “trequartista” role.
Galliani believes that the tactical switch should be a “natural evolution” but has faith in Saponara to deliver and therefore ruling out the need for Kaka.
