Kaka Admits Manchester City Offer Almost Made Him Leave Milan

The Brazilian maestro has confessed that Manchester City’s incredible offer almost saw him leave the Rossoneri.

Milan were on the verge of losing their star man Kaka to Manchester City in the winter transfer period, but to the huge relief of all concerned at the club, the deal fell through after Silvio Berlusconi stepped in at the very last moment to halt negotiations.

In a recent interview with Sportsmediaset, the Brazilian has once again reaffirmed that parting ways with the Rossoneri was never a likely option, although he did consider leaving at one stage.

“I thought about what I had won here, and also the things that I still want to win in these colours, and because of that, I couldn’t leave,” Kaka declared in the interview.

“Another decisive factor was the affection of the fans, which was extremely important for me.

“I never wanted to leave this club, and this was proven by the fact that I rejected all of the offers that came my way,” he added.

“However, out of respect for Milan, I did consider some of City’s offers, as from an economic point of view, their proposal was very convenient for them, meaning that I was considering leaving the club.

“AC Milan are also a business and in this moment of crisis, I think it is normal to consider the budget,” Kaka concluded.
