LONDON, Jan 15 — AC Milan are set to accept Manchester City’s offer of £100 million (RM510 million) for Kaka.
Sportsmail understands that the relegation-threatened Barclays Premier League side are confident that the Italian giants will allow them to talk to the Brazil striker after City made a formal approach.
Sources close to the deal have also indicated that reports in Italy of Kaka turning down the offer “were not made in the past 24 hours”.
The 26-year-old reportedly told Mediaset — a TV channel owned by AC Milan president Berlusconi: “I want to grow old at Milan. I want to captain this team.
“We all know that there is a pecking order at the club. Maldini and Ambrosini are before me but my ambition is to lead the club.
“There have been significant offers for me, which I have turned down.”
Kaka’s spokesman Diogo Kotscho has further fuelled speculation that a deal will be done after he told Sky Sports News that “a deal this month was not impossible”.
Kotscho added: “Kaka will talk to Manchester City if the two clubs agree a fee.
“The Premier League is one of the best and he wants to play there. I don’t know if it will be at this time or not.
“It is not impossible, but it will be difficult to reach a deal with AC Milan.”
It is now up to the player to decide whether he wants to switch Milan for Manchester. — The Daily Mail
