It is reported that Ricky Kaka will not activate a clause this summer in his Milan contract, which would otherwise allow him to leave.
The Brazilian recently opened speculation on his future by commenting that he would talk to director Adriano Galliani at the end of the season, whilst rumoured offers from the MLS were ‘tempting’.
Galliani then confirmed at the weekend that the 31-year-old does have a clause in his contract that allows him to leave in the summer, if the club do not qualify for the Champions League.
With that mathematically confirmed with Week 31’s results, rumours have been that Orlando City already have a verbal agreement with the Brazilian playmaker.
However, Sky Sport 24 report today their belief that Kaka is not intending to exercise his release clause. They are running the line that the player has the intention to continue on with the Rossoneri for the time being.
Tuttosport, however, report that the matter is not so clear-cut, and that aspects such as the wage drop of 20 per cent due for the playing squad for failure to make the Champions League, has Kaka considering his future and a possible move out to the US for January 2015.
