Kaka has re-joined his former club, AC Milan on a free transfer.
The 31-year-old joins Milan after four disastrous years at Real Madrid.
Just as i reported two days ago, the Brazilian told Madrid that he no longer wanted to stay at the club as he was not guaranteed first team football.
Given that Madrid initially paid Milan £56million for Kaka, it is a surprise that they have let him go for nothing.
It is understood that talks between all three parties went on deep into the early hours of this morning.
AC Milan have released a statement this morning confirming the transfer:
“Last night after 2000 CET, thanks to the traditionally good relationship between the two clubs, Real Madrid and Milan reached and formalised an agreement for the transfer of Ricardo Kaka into Rossonero colours.”
During his first spell at the Italian giant, Kaka won the Champions League and the Italian League title. Kaka also won the Ballon d’Or in 2007.
Kaka will be hoping that the move can kick-start his career and possibly put him back in contention for a Brazil call-up.
