Kaka had dinner in Milan with Adriano Galliani and admitted “this is what I needed. We’ll do great things together.”
The Brazilian completed his transfer from Real Madrid this evening and waved to fans outside the window of the club HQ before throwing his Number 22 jersey into the crowd.
“I am so excited, it’s wonderful to see so many people, so many friends, and this is what I needed,” he told Sky Sport Italia outside the Giannino restaurant.
“What do I expect? I expect to experience many joyful moments. I’ve already had so many and hope to have more with these great young players. It’s a different situation for me, as now I’m one of the oldest here.
“My message to the fans? We’ll do great things together.”
Kaka will fly back to Madrid tonight in order to sort out the details of the move with his family and return to Italy on Wednesday.
“There is no business, only pleasurable sensations for a player who is finally coming home. It was very, very difficult, but it’s all over now,” Vice-President Galliani told Sky Sport Italia.
“Everyone had to put the effort in to make this go through. The transfer market? It is definitely closed.”
The financial details of the deal have been kept extremely vague, but Real Madrid have sold Kaka to Milan on a permanent basis and he signed a two-year contract.
Reports continue to circulate that LA Galaxy will be the 31-year-old’s next destination after his spell with the Rossoneri.
