Milan have reportedly been put off re-opening talks with Real Madrid over the signing of Ricky Kaka, after receiving financial advice.
The Rossoneri re-opened initial negotiations with Los Blancos over the 30-year-old Brazilian last week, with market consultant Ernesto Bronzetti reportedly meeting with Real President Florentino Perez.
Milan’s Vice-President Adriano Galliani confirmed over the weekend that the club would be re-entering talks over a proposed loan bid for their former player, with Galliani expected to fly out this week to meet with Perez.
However, the Gazzetta dello Sport report on Monday that the second-in-command to Silvio Berlusconi has taken some financial advice on the workings behind a proposed deal for Kaka and the feedback received was so negative that he may have been put off even flying out to Spain.
The news is described as a ‘cold shower’ for Galliani and is thought to be directly related to a tax issue surrounding any possible transfer.
