Milan target Ricky Kaka could end up replacing another former Rossoneri man, David Beckham, at LA Galaxy.
The Brazilian has made it clear he’d like a return to San Siro this summer just three years after completing his switch to Real Madrid.
However, the clubs cannot agree on a price-tag and so it’s now reported by Spanish newspaper AS that America beckons.
LA Galaxy have also been linked with the 30-year-old and today AS are suggesting that this interest is as they plan for a successor to Beckham.
At 37, there is speculation that the Americans will be happy to release the Englishman at the end of his contract and it is understood that LA would like Kaka to take his place as a ‘star player’.
Kaka was reportedly well-received by fans in the States during Real Madrid’s pre-season tour.
MLS side Galaxy are prepared to offer the Brazilian €27m for a three-year contract, matching his current Real Madrid wage, and are understood to even be prepared to wait until 2013 to sign the player, if they cannot convince Los Blancos of a deal this summer.
Galatasaray are also said to be considering a loan bid for Kaka this summer, but that they would require 50 per cent of his wages to be financed by Real – something the Spaniards made clear to Milan that they’re not intent on doing.
