Milan have confirmed on Monday morning an agreement to sign Real Madrid’s Ricardo Kaka on a two-year contract.
Reports over the weekend indicated that the Italians were immediately back in for the Brazilian star, on from his public indication last week that he wanted to leave Los Blancos.
Following rumours that a deal had been agreed yesterday in the Spanish capital, Milan have released a brief statement on their official website.
“Adriano Galliani and Milan have concluded the great operation for Ricardo Kaka between 2.30 and 3.00 tonight,” read the posting.
“The agreement between the Rossonero club and Kaka is for two years, until June 30, 2015.”
Madrid are seen as having released Kaka on a free transfer in order to complete his return to San Siro.
The 31-year-old is expected to fly back to Italy with Vice-President Galliani today to undergo a medical.
It is understood that the player has signed a provisional €4m-a-season contract, with bonuses, down from the initial €6m salary said to have been requested and the €10m he was on at Madrid.
Real Madrid spent €65m to sign Kaka from Milan back in 2009.
