Man City offer £175m for Kaká

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Manchester City have launched a stunning £175 million bid in order to land AC Milan ace Kaká.

According to The Sun, City chief executive Garry Cook and deal broker Kia Joorabchian last night met Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani to offer the mega bid.

Milan would pocket £100 million and Kaká almost £75 million for a five-year deal worth £15 million a season.

But Galliani told the City delegation: "We would not consider selling Kaká for £100 million — it would have to be an obscene amount more."

The Italian giants have never sold any of their superstars but admit they have been shocked by the world-record bid. Milan have twice in the past rejected megabucks offers from Real Madrid.

The 26-year-old star has been linked with a switch to Eastlands ever since the Abu Dhabi United Group took control at City and immediately made bold exclamations with regards transfer policy.

City's new owners proved they have the financial muscle by signing Robinho from Real Madrid in the summer in a £32.5 million deal.

In November, Kaká admitted that playing in the Premier League was an ambition he hoped to realise at some stage in his playing career, while at the same time accepting a Milan exit would be difficult.
