Brazilian expected to secure return to Serie A ahead of deadline.
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is set to fly out to Madrid on Sunday, in order to complete a deal to take Kaka back to Italy.
The Real Madrid star revealed last week that he wanted to leave the Spanish capital in order to obtain guarantees elsewhere of first-team football.
While the Rossoneri are looking to add some creativity to their midfield and replace Kevin-Prince Boateng, the 31-year-old is desperate to work his way back into the plans of Luiz Felipe Scolari and the Brazil squad ahead of the World Cup next year.
Kaka left Milan back in 2009 for what was then a world record transfer fee, however he has failed to recreate his best form since his switch to La Liga.
As a result, Galliani is said to be in Madrid on Sunday to meet with Madrid and Kaka’s representatives to agree on a deal to sign the Brazilian ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline, as reported by Football Italia.
However, according to Tuttosport, it will only be a temporary stay as Kaka will join the Los Angeles Galaxy in March, when the MLS season begins.
This proposed arrangement has not yet been confirmed by any of the clubs, but it would seem unlikely given that Milan’s pursuit of Keisuke Honda will see the Japanese playmaker arrive in January on a free transfer, but ineligible for the Champions League should Milan make it that far.
Nevertheless, the excitement is growing within the Rossoneri faithful as one of their former greats looks set for a return.
