Serie A giants won’t be back for Brazilian ace.
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has ruled out the possibility of the club making a bid to bring Kaka back to the San Siro, according to Sky Sports.
The Brazilian international left for Real Madrid in 2009 for a fee of €68.5million but has gradually fallen down in the pecking order in Spain and Milan have spent the past two transfer windows trying to hammer out a deal that would see him return to Serie A.
A deal to bring him back on loan in January was reported to be close but the deal eventually had to be put on ice as the club plumped for Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli instead, who arrived for €20 million.
And despite splashing out on the former Inter man Galliani insists that the club’s belt remains tight and after weighing up the pros and cons he feels a deal wouldn’t be feasible.
“Kaka has very high wages and is now 31, so I can rule out any move to Milan,” he told legaseriea.it.
Balotelli’s arrival also signalled a change in playing style for the Rossoneri with fellow youngster Stephan El Shaarawy flanking his Italy team-mate alongside M’Baye Niang.
And Galliani insists Milan are ready to deploy 21-year-old midfielder Riccardo Saponara – a January acquisition from Empoli – in the ‘trequartista’ role after being priced out of any move for former Ballon d’Or winner Kaka.
“There are no restrictions on using a trequartista,” he added. “That change in the team should be a natural evolution and that’s why we bought Saponara,” Galliani added.
