Galliani: 'Kaka will not return'

Milan chief Adriano Galliani insists “Kaka will not return and from Tuesday we'll think about contract renewals.”

There have been numerous reports that the Rossoneri want to bring Kaka back from Real Madrid, including statements from Galliani and President Silvio Berlusconi.

“Unfortunately Kaka will not return and the reasons are economic ones,” Vice-President Galliani told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Roma will probably buy out Marco Borriello, while there's absolutely no truth in talks for Cristiano Ronaldo or Michael Essien.

“Mario Balotelli to Milan? I doubt it.”

The Rossoneri have more pressing problems to deal with, as several stars – including Clarence Seedorf, Andrea Pirlo, Alessandro Nesta, Pippo Inzaghi and captain Massimo Ambrosini – have contracts that expire next month.

“On Monday I am in a Lega Calcio meeting, so from Tuesday I'll start speaking to the players about contract renewals.

“When a deal expires, everyone has to agree on the next course of action. We will look at the problem and see what happens.”

Kevin-Prince Boateng is still technically only on loan from Genoa and Galliani referred to his Michael Jackson-style Moonwalk performance during the Scudetto celebrations.

“I hope Genoa President Enrico Preziosi doesn't raise the price-tag after seeing how he can dance!

“As well as a football player, he's a born showman.”
