Brazilian international Ricardo Kaka could make a sensational return to former club AC Milan after Milan's chief administrator Adriano Galliani stated that the player "always remained in our hearts".
Kaka had recently stated that he wanted to leave Real Madrid after scoring a brace in the match against Deportivo La Coruna.
"I want to leave. I think now is the right time for me and the club to part company amicably. I have spoken to Carlo Ancelotti and the club, everyone knows. My father is having talks with the club to find a solution," the Brazilian had said.
"Things are difficult for me in the team and the club knows what I want. It is my duty to work and keep on training, but my father is currently trying to see what might come up. Once again, I think this is the best thing for both myself and the club."
And Galliani has added fuel to rumours linking the Brazilian with a return to Milan by saying that the player is still loved at the club and a transfer might be possible.
He stated: "Kaka is in our hearts. He could come back; it is possible. We'll have to see..."
And with Kevin-Prince Boateng moving to Schalke on Friday, Milan are a little short on options for the attacking midfield role in the team. This development coupled with the fact that Milan have qualified for the Champions League this season, which will bring in a lot of cash to the club's coffers, increases the chances of the club capturing the signature of their former star.
Kaka has failed to grab a starting spot in the Madrid line-up during his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu so far and with the imminent arrival of Gareth Bale from Tottenham, the Brazilian will further struggle to get playing time at Madrid.
Thus the player is looking for a move away from the club this summer itself in search for regular playing time ahead of the World Cup next year.
