San Paolo has confirmed that will send Ricky Kaka to leave Milan for new expansion team Orlando City. Kaka is set to return home to San Paolo but they chose to set Kaka on loan to Orlando City. Orlando City will begin preseason training in January for its inaugural MLS season.
“After 60 days of negotiations, we are all agreed, but still need to put the signatures on the contracts,” Sao Paulo Vice-President Ataide Gil Guerreiroon Redacao SporTV.
“In any case, we have resolved all the issues involving all the parties, who are Milan, the MLS, Orlando City, Kaka and Sao Paulo.”
Orlando City won’t be able to play in Major League Soccer until March 2015 as being a new expansion team, so in the meantime Kaka will train and play at Sao Paulo in Brazil on loan.
“He will sign for the MLS, because it is the League that signs the players, then clubs can choose three and Orlando City picked Kaka.
“The player will undergo his medical before moving to Orlando City, who will loan him to Sao Paulo for six months.
“Kaka is very emotional at coming back home and he’s in great shape. He comes to Sao Paulo with great motivation.”
Kaka appeared in 30 matches for the Rossoneri netting 7 goals, as well as chipping in with 4 assists.
