Allegri slows Kaka rumour

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri has cooled speculation that the club will attempt to re-sign Kaka this summer.

The two parties have been linked together on Monday following the words of Vice-President Adriano Galliani.

"Kaka is a great and I'd do anything for him," Galliani noted. "I cried when he left because I loved him intensely.

"I have suffered for just two players in my life – the first was when Leonardo left and then for Kaka."

The Brazilian ended his six-year San Siro stint in 2009 after accepting a switch to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

However, he has since suffered with form and fitness which has seen him associated with a possible Milan return.

Milan official Ariedo Braida also fuelled talk of an imminent reunion. "There is a true friendship between us and he is always in our hearts," he stated.

Nevertheless, speaking after Milan wrapped up the title at the weekend, Allegri quietened the reports.

"The return of Kaka is just a rumour," he stated on Monday. "For now we are just thinking about the present campaign.

"At the end of the season we will sit around a table and see what we can do to strengthen the team. It's too soon for that now."
