Rossoneri confirm deal on their official website.
AC Milan have confirmed that they have reached a deal to re-sign Kaka from Real Madrid, with the Brazilian set to sign a two-year contract.
The 31-year-old was in talks with Adriano Galliani late on Sunday night, as the Rossoneri vice-president admitted that a deal had to have been agreed last night in order for the player to fly to Milan on Monday to undergo a medical and sign his contract.
Those talks have now resulted in an agreement, with the club confirming the move on their official website, and Kaka is set to land in Milan on Monday morning where he will complete the formalities of the move.
According to reports in the Italian media, the attacking midfielder will sign a two-year deal, and arrives on a free transfer after a disappointing spell in Spain.
Having earned €10m per season in the Spanish capital, Milan were keen to see the player significantly reduce his wages, and if speculation is to be believed then Kaka will earn €4m per season with additional bonuses.
“I’m coming home! Now I can experience more joyous moments with Milan. I am very happy, it was a long negotiation, I thank the fans and team-mates for messages of affection,” he told reporters at the airport in Madrid according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
After spending six successful years at the club between 2003 and 2009, Kaka will be determined to prove that he still has plenty left to offer as he is likely to receive regular football at his old club.
That in turn will strengthen his hopes of returning to the Brazil squad under Luiz Felipe Scolari ahead of the World Cup next summer, while Milan are in desperate need for some creativity in the trequartista role.
Galliani has previously noted that Kaka “is always in our hearts”, and it appears that the love story between the club and one of its former greats is about to be rekindled.
