Kaka says a move to America appeals.

AC Milan playmaker has been urged not to head to MLS at the end of the season - by his captain Riccardo Montolivo.

The Brazilian has shown he has lost none of his magic since joining Milan this season, and so far he's got seven Serie A goals in 23 games since making the move from Real Madrid.

However despite that, Kaka admitted last week that a move to America appeals to him, while reports have suggested that he has a clause in his contract which allows him to head to the States if the Rossoneri miss out on Champions League qualification.

“One day, I would like to play in America,” he said.

“Let’s see. At the end of the season, I will talk to [general manager Adriano Galliani]. Not just to speak about bonuses and money -- money is not the main thing for me now, and I think that is understood.

"I want to see what his ideas are and what the club’s ideas are. If it turns out I need to move, I will choose the MLS.”

His reported destination is said to be Orlando City, with the new franchise set to launch in 2015.

However Montolivo has implored him to stay put, insisting that the World Cup winner still has plenty to offer in Europe.

Kaka will evaluate his situation but only at the end of the season," Montolivo told Milan's website.

"We will try to qualify for the Europa League in order to give him a further motivation to remain at Milan, even though I'm certain that he is aware of the prestige this club has."

Milan currently seven points adrift of rivals Inter Milan, who occupy the final Europa League spot as things stand.
