The prodigal son returns this week.
Brazilian playmaker Kaka will be formally unveiled as an AC Milan player again on Thursday this week when the club will present him to the fans for a second time, Sky Sports reports.
The 31-year-old made his way back to the San Siro earlier this week on a free transfer, just four years after he cost the Spanish giants in a £68.5m deal, and he will be presented to the fans once again from the balcony of Milan’s Via Turati headquarters.
A statement published on Milan’s official website confirmed the 2007 Ballon d’Or winner – who reportedly returned to Italy on a free transfer – will meet the press at Milanello at 1100 BST on Thursday.
Kaka had originally joined the club from Brazilian club Sao Paolo back in 2003 and went on to to bag 95 goals in 270 assists for the Serie A giants before making his big money move to Spain.
Having spent much of last season looking on from the sidelines, making just 27 appearances across all competitions, he decided on a return to Milan, where he’d spent six happy years picking up a succession of personal and team honours.
The Brazilian told the Milan Channel on his arrival at Linate airport: “Four years have passed and now I’m back.
“It’s been two weeks that I thought if I could come back, a return to Milan would be ideal for me.
“In the last few days, I’ve been dreaming of hearing the fans sing my name in the San Siro again.”
