EVERYTHING HAS stopped: Kaka will not join Milan after all as the deal with Real Madrid broke down.
Milan spent the last days negotiating with Real Madrid and Kaka’s representatives to make the deal possible but everything has stopped, the deal has collapsed and Kaka will not join Milan in this January.
Kaka admitted last week that he would do anything to return to Milan and today’s report suggested that he had agreed to Milan’s demands to reduce his salary. However, hours later, Galliani announced – no deal.
“The negotiations for Kaka have broken down. It’s not possible to complete the deal because of fiscal reasons,” Milan vice President Adriano Galliani told the press. “The Kaka deal broke down about an hour ago. But we had agreed upon everything else. Kaka, Balotelli and Beckham? None of them will join Milan.”
Galliani explained before that there are fiscal problems in bringing Kaka to Italy as the taxes are different in Spain and Italy so much that a €1 million net in Kaka’s wages would cost €1.3 million to Real Madrid while it would cost Milan €2 million. The reports earlier on Monday suggested that Kaka had agreed to lower to wage demands to €6 million a season but Real Madrid and the taxes proved to be a problem for il Diavolo.
Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, who turns 31 in April, will not re-join the Rossoneri according to Galliani. Kaka played his best years at Milan from 2003 to 2009, winning the Ballon d’Or award in 2007.
