AC Milan star Kaka has insisted he does not want to leave the San Siro, as reports suggest he is set to follow Carlo Ancelotti to Chelsea.

Speculation has suggested that informal talks over a £70million deal have already started as the Blues look to tempt the Brazilian to the Premier League, while returning Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is also a long-term admirer.

Ancelotti's appointment as manager at Stamford Bridge was confirmed on Monday and the Italian is set to begin a three-year contract at the beginning of July with the aim of securing the UEFA Champions League.

It is rumoured that Kaka is top of the 49-year-old's wanted list as he plans tweaks to his inherited, ageing squad, with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich understood to be prepared to spend big this summer.

But Kaka, who broke into the Milan side under former boss Ancelotti, insists he is staying in Italy, telling Gazzetta dello Sport: "I say it for the last time. I don't want to leave Milan."

The playmaker appeared to be on the verge of a world-record switch to Manchester City in the winter transfer window before the deal collapsed as Milan opted out of selling.

Kaka's potential move to Eastlands was shrouded in controversy as it was suggested the player was being forced out of Italy against his wishes.

The 27-year-old has now stated that he will make no further comment about his future so that there is no confusion over his desire to stay at Milan.

"In this period I prefer to remain silent because I don't want to be misunderstood," he added. "To the millions of Milan supporters, I say that I have made my choice. I want to stay."

Kaka admits that he is in a debt of gratitude to Ancelotti after he was offered the opportunity to shine.

"I owe him a lot. He opened the doors for me in Italian football," he concluded.

Nah. It'll continue. It'll then become 'Kaka wants to return to Milan' or 'Kaka wants MU' or......

Agreed.

As much as I like him, he better not think about returning once he left Milan.

PAOLO MALDINI: 'I think that Kaka will remain at Milan'

6/2/2009

MILAN - These are the declarations of Paolo Maldini, present today in Florence for a football tournament, where he received an award for his career and where his 13-year-old son Christian played and won the final against Fiorentina: "It's not easy to know what Kaka will do. I think that he will remain at Milan, but if Ancelotti was cryptic about his future, Kaka is even more."(ANSA)

For what it's worth - which may not be much - the Spanish press is reporting that Galliani and Kaka's father have flown to Madrid today for talks with Florentino Perez.

Does 'the Spanish press' mean AS or Marca? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

Fishdoll says hihihihi to the penguins and hopes they've been keeping everyone in line!

Also to follow up on the 'summit meeting' story, Galliani was contacted by Gazzetta --- he's at the beach in Romania so...well, not even a good lie this time by AS.

Well, there's no real proof he's anywhere near spain at this point. I don't think that what AS reports is at all reliable. Galliani has said to Gazzetta that he's in Romania, but yet again he could also be fibbing. Right now, there's no real need to be upset with anyone. Let's just wait and see what happens in the next couple of days, shall we?

EDIT: Okay, so we know Galliani IS in fact in Madrid, this time from a reliable source:

(from the ticker on acmilan.com's italian page)

PRESIDENZA REAL MADRID: ADRIANO GALLIANI PRIMO INVITATO
02/06/2009
MILANO - L'Amministratore Delegato rossonero, Adriano Galliani, con piacere si trova nella città di Madrid solo ed esclusivamente in quanto primo invitato alla cena per l'investitura di Florentino Perez, nuovo Presidente del Real Madrid.


[Administrative delegate Adriano Galliani with pleasure finds himself in Madrid only and exclusively as the first person invited to dinner for the investiture of Florentino Perez, new president of Real Madrid.]

Not sure if it comes across exactly in translation but the sense I get from the original is that they're trying to make clear that he's ONLY there to have dinner.

I can't see any reason why Galliani is with Perez other than discussing the Kaka issue.

As sad as I'm sounding now, 50m+Sneijder+Robben is more than worth it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sleep.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sleep.gif) but it's probably BS?

Kaka Spokesman Confirms Real Madrid Offer

Diogo Kotscho has revealed that Real Madrid have tabled a bid...

Spokesman for Milan star Kaka, Diogo Kotscho, has confirmed that Real Madrid have tabled an offer for the Brazilian star.

Speculation has been building up all day about a possible transfer after it was reported that Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani was in Madrid with Kaka’s father-and-agent Bosco Leite.

Kotscho has now revealed that Real Madrid have made a bid for Kaka.

"The offer of Real is significant, but lower than that made by Manchester City, who offered more than €100m," he stated.

“However, there is no agreement yet.”

Meanwhile, it has also been confirmed by Ansa that Galliani is indeed in Madrid as a guest of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez at his election party.

The size of Madrid’s offer is a source of speculation, but Tuttosport are claiming that the Blancos have offered around €50m, plus Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder.

I can't see why Galliani should not be there or that he can't be for any other reason. Everything's pretty normal in my opinion. Guys, relax! if they wanna make a transfer they can do it before we learn a thing about it, Galliani being there means nothing at all.
