Some interesting comments from the USA and Europe that indicate that former World Player Of The Year Kaka will be playing in MLS for the Orlando City next season.
When Kaka moved from Real Madrid to AC Milan in August he has a clause inserted in his Milan contract that he could leave at the end of this season if Milan do not qualify for the Champions League. Milan are currently 19 points behind Napoli for the final Champions League so the question is where will Kaka go if he leaves Milan?
In an interview with Corriere della Sera last week, Kaka expressed an interest in finishing his career in MLS saying:
“In future I’d like to play in America. At the end of the season I’ll talk to Adriano Galliani to understand his ideas and those of the club.
“If I was to leave, then I would like a transfer to the United States.”
Adriano Galliani being the Milan CEO and he added to the speculation this week by saying:
“Ricky has the clause in his contract (that allows him to leave), but we hope he doesn’t exercise it.”
Then, to add fuel to the fire, a tweet posted by Orlando founder and president Philip Rawlins on Saturday said:
Orlando City is owned by Brazilian billionaire Flávio Augusto da Silva. The magnate has a long-standing personal and professional friendship with Kaká, and on Saturday revealed via his Facebook account that there will soon be “big news at Orlando City”.
The Spanish newspaper AS Sport went a step further on Sunday saying that Kaka has a verbal agreement with the Major League Soccer club to move to the United States for Orlando City’s debut MLS campaign, which kicks off in 2015.
Kaka has been linked with a move to MLS for years now, but it looks like the stars will align next season. What do you think of Kaka coming to MLS?
