It appears that money can’t buy you everything. Even with £91m being thrown in their face, Italian giants, AC Milan, are still balking at the thought of allowing their prized striker to move to the Midlands.
However the club isn’t the only party questioning the move. The player in question is doing the same thing as well!
Manchester City could face disappointment in their pursuit of Kaka after the player insisted he wanted to “grow old” at Milan. A deal for the Brazilian was gathering pace after his representative, Diogo Kotscho, today said he would speak to City if a bid was accepted by Milan. The Italian club’s chief executive, Adriano Galliani, has confirmed that he met a delegation from Eastlands yesterday, which it is thought to have included the executive chairman, Garry Cook, as well as two representatives of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Abu Dhabi billionaire owner of the club.

Even with the unlimited funds, it appears Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan will have a difficult time convincing the best players in the world that Manchester City is the right club for them. To be honest, I don’t blame them, considering the fact that City are sitting near the bottom of the table, and some of the names being throw around at the moment play for clubs that are currently playing in the Champions League.
Would you want to leave a successful club for a questionable future? I highly doubt it.
Do Manchester City supporters believe the best players in the world will be playing at their club next year. Are the Sheikh’s current dreams realistic?
