Milan CEO Adriano Galliani revealed last week that all parties involved are keen to make the transfer happen, but added that sacrifices are necessary if Kaka is indeed to return to the Serie A giants.
"I really hope that the deal for Kaka goes through. He was always my hero and playing alongside him would be a dream come true," El Shaarawy was quoted as saying on the official Milan website.
Meanwhile, players such as Giampaolo Pazzini and Mathieu Flamini are equally positive when it comes to Kaka's possible return to San Siro.
"We’re all very curious to see if Kaka will come. If he does he’ll be welcomed with open arms and he’ll help us out a lot," Pazzini stated.
"Ricky is a great champion and if he comes back, that’s a very positive thing for us," Flamini concluded.
Kaka joined Madrid from Milan in the summer of 2009, but has never really been able to live up to the high expectations.
