Kaka: Could take in Sao Paulo loan before heading to the MLS

A return to the club where it all began for Kaka has been mooted for some time, with Sao Paulo open in their desire to get a deal done.

Confusion regarding clauses in Kaka’s contract in Italy and interest from America have held things back, but an agreement could now be close.

Kaka is understood to have agreed to link up with Orlando City for their MLS bow in 2015, but prior to that he could be heading back to his native Brazil to spend six months with Sao Paulo.

Vice-president Ataide Gil Guerreiro told Sportv: “After 60 days of negotiations we have reached an agreement, but there isn’t anything formal yet.

“There are steps to be taken but when it comes to values, there is an agreement between all parties involved – Milan, MLS, Orlando, Kaka and Sao Paulo.

“He will sign a contract with the MLS. Clubs can choose three designated players, Orlando choose Kaka.

“He will undergo a medical and will join Orlando, then he will be loaned to Sao Paulo for six months until December 31.

“Not only is Kaka excited, but he is also physically peaking.

“The problems at Real Madrid were due to arguments and positioning with the manager. As Milan don’t have a good squad, he has a clause allowing him to leave. He will come to Sao Paulo very motivated.”

While Sao Paulo are of the opinion that a deal is close, Kaka is remaining tight-lipped on the issue of his future, with the Brazil international reluctant to speculate on what the summer will bring.

He said at a recent event in his homeland: “I’m not leaving Milan. Every year in this period there is a lot of speculation about my future.

“The only certainty is that on July 9 I must go to Milan’s summer training camp.”

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
