Allegri claims AC Milan will welcome Real Madridís wantaway Kaka
AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has welcomed Kaka to rejoin the club. Allegri has told the Brazilian midfielder that the Rossoneri doors will always be open for him in case he decides to move back to the San Siro.
Reports in Spain suggest Kaka is hunting for a new home. Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed the veteran’s desire for a moveaway, but was unable to comment on the new destination of the Brazil international.
Kaka, who made a big-money move from AC Milan to Real Madrid, is considered to be one of the best midfielders in the world. The 31-year-old was expected to make a big impact in Real Madrid, but he was eclipsed by Real Madrid’s star-struck squad.
After moving to Real Madrid in 2009, Kaka never managed to become apple of the eye for any manager at the club. The former Sao Paulo midfielder’s tenure in Spain started with a streak of injuries followed by him falling out of favor in the eyes of Jose Mourinho.
With only 24 hour remaining in the transfer window, AC Milan are keen on bolstering their squad. The departure of Mathieu Flamini means Allegri will be looking for a midfielder and Kaka might just be the answer to his problems.
AC Milan faced an opening day defeat to Seria A competitors Verona. The defeat clearly demonstrated AC Milan’s lack of power and talent in the midfield. Allegri admits he needs to strengthen his squad in order to acquire a Champions League berth for next season
“If he was to come, AC Milan would be stronger because he is a player with great quality,” Allegri said. “We would need him and he would offer a great contribution from a technical and charisma point of view, even though he hasn't played a lot in the last two seasons.
“I am confident in what the club will do in the last days of the market.”
AC Milan just recently signed in Slovenian winger Valter Birsa from Genoa. The deal has seen Luca Antonini move to the other side.
“Genoa Cricket and Football Club announce that they have acquired from AC Milan, in a permanent move, the rights to defender Luca Antonini,” a statement released on AC Milan’s official website said.
“Everything has been formalized, with the same agreement confirming the sale of the rights to Valter Birsa.”
