Kaka: Has left AC Milan

The Rossoneri announced Kaka's second spell with the club is over after he exercised a get-out clause after Milan's failure to qualify for European football next season, despite still having one year left to run on his deal.

He will now join Sao Paulo, with whom he began his youth and professional career before being sold to Milan in 2003, and will then link up with Orlando City, who will become a team in the MLS in spring 2015.

"I've always said I wanted to play in the USA and now I have reached an agreement to play there," Kaka told AC Milan's television channel.

"Orlando City is a new team with a good project and the owner (Flavio Augusto da Silva) is Brazilian.

"I'm also happy to return to Sao Paulo. It's really satisfying for me."

Kaka only returned to the San Siro on a free transfer last summer after four years at Real Madrid.

The 32-year-old, who won a Serie A title and the Champions League in his first spell at Milan, scored seven goals in 30 league appearances in the 2013-14 season.

In total, Kaka, FIFA World Player of the Year in 2007, has scored 104 goals in 307 appearances for the Rossoneri.

Milan's statement continued: "Certain loves never end, they go in big circles when a contract is mutually terminated.

"The key word is mutual.

"Ciao Ricky (Kaka), we will never leave each other."

Milan finished a disappointing eighth last season and failed to qualify for European competition for the first time in 16 years.

Kaka added he will never again wear the number 22 - the number he wore at Milan.

"In Brazil, I think I will wear the number 8 and then 10 in America," he said.

Milan captain Riccardo Montolivo paid tribute to his former team-mate, writing on his Facebook page: "It was an honour to be your team-mate. Thanks for everything and good luck for your career."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
