Galliani Explains Kaka Failure

AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani claims that a proposed move for Kaka failed to come to fruition due to Real Madrid’s insistence on demanding an unrealistic fee.

Kaka enjoyed an excellent spell during his six-year stay at the San Siro but has not had the same impact since moving to Madrid.

This prompted many to believe that he could broker a move to return to the Rossoneri during the January transfer window.

However, Gialliani has since revealed that the Brazilian’s move did not materialise due to Madrid’s stubbornness.

"The story about Kaka is a closed chapter for me," he told Corriere dello Sport. "Real Madrid wanted €18 million - a figure that given his age and salary demands made a deal frankly unthinkable."

Whilst the Milan CEO may be unwilling to pay that amount, Kaka’s Spanish owners would still have been hoping to recoup some of the €68 million they paid for him.

Having failed to capture the 30-year-old Kaka, Milan made a €19 million swoop for Mario Balotelli as they attempt to challenge for a Champions League place.
