Kaka saga close to an end as Real Madrid lower asking price

by Staff Writer | Posted on Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

Brazilian midfielder, Ricardo Kaka will reportedly speak with Real Madrid manager, Jose Mourinho on Tuesday with the intent on asking the club to facilitate his departure.

According to Italian sports daily, Corriere dello Sport, Kaka is hoping to convince Real Madrid to lower their asking price from a rumoured €25 million, so as the player can rejoin his former club, AC Milan.

Kaka is aware that Milan will not pay out the €35 million originally requested by Madrid, despite Los Blancos paying €65 million for the player in 2009.

Real Madrid, sees a benefit in selling Kaka, as the Brazilian has agreed to lower his yearly salary by 40% from €10 million per year to €6 million per year, in hopes of making the move even more enticing.

The sale of Kaka would give the club additional funds to sign Tottenham midfielder, Luka Modric, while also getting Kaka`s enormous salary of the books.

Kaka also might be joined by teammate Lassana Diarra as part of the deal, as the defensive midfielder`s role has diminished over the past season and AC Milan have taken an interest in the player.

While we won`t know anything for certain until after their reported meeting, it is safe to say that the relationship between Kaka and Real Madrid is close to an end.
