Brazil midfielder Kaka has been a long time target for MLS' newest franchise Orlando City, and his AC Milan teammate and fellow Samba star Robinho could be set to join the side as well.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday, the 30-year old Robinho and his representatives have met with AC Milan boss Adriano Galliani to discuss terminating the former Real Madrid and Manchester City forward's contract with Major League Soccer and Orlando City Soccer Club his preferred destination.
“Robinho hopes to finish his career in the United States,” the paper says. “Evidently, the striker is ready to accept the idea of an extended vacation before the change of footballing continent.”
That extended vacation would be due to the fact that Orlando aren't actually in the league yet and will only join at the start of next season, which will be in the new year.
OCSC have been chasing Kaka for a long time now, and he is thought to be good friends with the Lions Brazilian owner and has visited the team and its facilities in the past, noting how he wants to move with his family to the Florida area.
The two players were both left out of Luiz Felipe Scolari's 23 man World Cup squad and have watched as their Milan side struggled to a mid-table finish in Serie A.
