Milan have again made it clear that re-signing Real Madrid's Kaka is virtually impossible due to the costs involved.
The Brazilian has been constantly associated with a return to Milanello, pretty much ever since he left the club in 2009 for close to €70m.
"When he went to Madrid I was moved," Vice-President Adriano Galliani told Sky Sport 24 on Tuesday.
"But his costs are too high for Milan. He would have to take a much bigger wage cut than Cesc Fabregas did to go to Barcelona.
The official added: "We would have to sign Kaka permanently, otherwise, due to the Spanish fiscal system, a loan move would create huge cost problems.
"Kaka can only move on loan within Spain. For us to sign him would mean doing so permanently and not on loan.
"I'm sorry to disappoint the fans, but the Kaka hypothesis is unfeasible."
The attacking midfielder spent six glorious years with Milan after a switch from Sao Paulo.
