Kaka looks to be coming to Milan, but it’s only for a visit.

It’s been rumored that Kaka wants a role at Milan, and with Leonardo, who he has a connection with, back at the club, it looks like he might have a role.

On the subject of Kaka, Leonardo said:

He’s expressed a desire to learn what it means to be a director, understand how things work and stay close to us.

Kaka is Milan’s last Ballon d’Or winner: he’s eternal, he’ll always be linked to club and he’ll be in the area.

Nothing’s definite, but it’s true that he wants to be close to us and in September he’ll be here in Milan.

There haven’t been any talks, only a show of being close and learning for free!

So will this be a good thing?
