Milan invite Kaka to return

Milan chief Silvio Berlusconi has sensationally opened the door for the Rossoneri to re-sign Kaka.

Speaking with Radio Kiss Kiss on Thursday afternoon, Berlusconi stated that he would be willing to sign the Real Madrid player.

"Kaka is an extraordinary man," he commented. "If he wants to come back to Milan we will welcome him with open arms."

The Brazilian's future at the Bernabeu is in some doubt after struggling for form and fitness since his move from Milan in 2009.

Kaka, who is also apparently interesting Chelsea, originally signed for the Italian giants in 2003 from Sao Paulo.

Milan are expected to strengthen the side over the summer as they look to mount a serious Champions League assault after winning the title.

"The Scudetto is deserved and we at Milan are happy as it confirmed us as the side which has won the most trophies in the world game," continued Berlusconi.

"We had to endure some dramatic moments during the season, with many injuries to deal with, especially in attack. But, at the end of the day, we were able to win."

As Radio Kiss Kiss is a Neapolitan station, the Italian Prime Minister was also asked for his opinion on Marek Hamsik, Napoli and the future of Azzurri boss Walter Mazzarri.

"Hamsik? I don't think that Napoli have the intention of selling one of their star players, especially if you take into account their ambitions for the future," he stated.

"The Champions League for Napoli is a deserved achievement and will offer the city an opportunity to re-launch itself.

"As for Mazzarri, I don't get involved in the decisions of others."
