Report: Kaka to Orlando City?

MOST COMMENTED

Orlando City President Philip Rawlins hinted that AC Milan playmaker Kaka could be on his way to the new Major League Soccer club next season, when he took to Twitter on Monday, saying: “We’re ready when you are Ricardo.” According to Spanish daily AS, Kaka has a verbal agreement with the club to move to the U.S. for Orlando’s debut campaign, which kicks off in March 2015. The 31-year-old, who scored a stunning strike against Chievo Verona in Milan’s 3-0 win, also hinted at a potential move when we said, “One day I’d like to play in the United States,” following the game on Saturday.

AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani added further fuel to the rumor when he confirmed that the former Brazil international has the option of walking away from the San Siro if Milan fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season. This looks a near-certainty given that the Italian giant is currently 24 points adrift of Napoli in the third and final UCL qualification slot in the Serie A table.

Speaking to La Gazetta dello Sport, Galliani said the Brazilian would decide his future at the end of the current campaign: “Kaká has a contract until 2015. If we don't make the 2014/15 Champions League, he has the option to leave. We hope he doesn't. He'll decide, not us.”
