The report flies in the face of several earlier statements from the player that he would not leave Milan, claiming that newly-installed Real president Florentino Perez reportedly sealed the deal with Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani and Bosco Leite, Kaka’s father and agent.
Just before the report was aired Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi had hinted at 27-year-old Kaka’s departure, citing the figures involved.
“I do not know if we can keep Kaka at Milan because they (Real) have offered him so much money,” Berlusconi said .
The radio report claimed that Kaka, currently in Brazil with the national team ahead of a World Cup qualifier against Uruguay, will sign up for five years and a salary worth £7.7m a year – or £150,000 a week.
Kaka’s spokesman Diogo Kotscho denied an agreement had been reached, however.
“Kaka will listen to Real and decide whether or not to make the transfer,” he said. “What I can say for certain is that the Spaniards and Milan have not reached any agreement.”
And a further complication was added when a subsequent report claimed that Carlo Ancelotti was about to step in to stop the transfer and instead bring Kaka with him to Chelsea.
