Breaking AC Milan news
Can Kaka come ? Will Kaka come ? Kaka should not come ? Kaka we love you, come back ! Will madrid let him go for cheap ?
These are some of the thoughts that have been going through the minds of the huge community of rossoneri fans since last week. Rumors are flying but Galliani in his typical style, is silent. Especially about Kaka.
The latest we hear is that Milan have Put in a ridiculous bid of €15m for kaka. Around the same time news comes flying that Madrid will not accept nothing lees than €50m for the Brazilian. What’s certain is that contact has been made between Milan and Madrid, between two old friends for the man in Question, Ricardo Kaka.
The Brazilian connection
The ever involved Brazilian media had earlier mentioned that , when Pato and Barbara were in Brazil on their little romantic summer vacation, she was bombarded with calls from Caroline, Kaka’s wife, urging Barbara to look into the matter of Kaka’s return.
Now of course, this little gossip between girls alone can’t make transfers happen, However it’s interesting to note that Kaka has the unanimous support of the whole Milan Squad. From old senators to the new stars, everyone wants Kaka back. Heck when Silvio finds some time away from all of his Bunga Bunga parties, he too must breed a deep desire to have the prodigal son back !
So then, what is the problem ?
Kaka seems to be on the fringe of a Madrid Squad which already has a midfielder too many. He’s still a good player who incidentally was third in the list behind Messi and CR9 when it came to Goals involvement last season. On top of that he’s still a marketable name who would sell a lot of Merchandise and certainly has good 2-3 seasons ahead of him as a top player. So where lies the problem ?
The problem with the return of Kaka
First off the problem is the Price Tag. Madrid bought him for €69m, Milan want to buy him back for €15m. There is obviously a huge gap. It all depends on wether Madrid are desperate enough to get him off their payroll and accept a very mediocre Milan Bid ? Are they willing incur such a huge loss ?
The second concern is Kaka’s injuries and wether Galliani and Berlusconi are getting him just because they promised the fans one Mr.X, a world class player. Milan fans fear this the most !
There is a concerned group of Milanisti who don’t want kaka back. They are very scared that this would be a repeat of Shevchenko.
Andriy is no doubt a Milan Legend and was the reason behind many years of pandemonium all round San Siro, but once he came back from Chelsea on Loan, he wasn’t the same man. He struggled to make any impact and in the process broke the hearts of many a Rossoneri fans.
Milanisti are afraid that if the same thing were to happen with Kaka, his pristine holier than all image will be charred in their hearts. That combined with his recent injury prone-ness will ensure that this deal is going to be more of a burden than bliss. So what is poor Galliani to do ?
Galliani and Silvio Promised a champion at the end of last season and now they are expected to deliver. I am certain that the champion Mr.X is going to be none other than Kaka. It’s a pretty easy deal if you look at it.
- Kaka is certainly not the most wanted man at Madrid where everything revolves around CR9.
- Milan can easily take him on Loan with an option to buy.
- Kaka knows Milan and in the homely scenario is bound to flourish.
- Kaka is willing to make th move and even reduce his wages
- Kaka’s family is keen to live in Milan
- Kaka has the unanimous support of the Milan Squad
- Madrid need to reduce their payroll
Will San siro once again echo with the chants of “per vedere segnare kaka” ? We will all know, come first of september.
