Carlo Ancelotti, coach of AC Milan, has admitted that Kaka could leave the club and sign for Manchester City.
The Serie A outfit have given the Brazilian international permission to speak to City regarding their £100 million bid and his father and advisor are due to arrive in Italy on Monday to discuss any possible move.
Kaka’s spokesman Diogo Kotscho said:
Milan has authorised the negotiation with City. The next step is Kaka’s father will talk to Manchester City.
Meanwhile, Milan’s chief executive Adriano Galliani met with City officials earlier this week which seemed to lead to a softening in Ancelotti’s stance, the coach telling the Italian media:
My hope is to be able to coach Kaka for many more years, but we’ve got to be aware of the facts and the club’s evaluation of the offer.
The squad is still competitive, even if we were to lose such an important player.
Our goals? They remain the same for this team with or without Kaka.
