Manchester City have been linked with a sensational 100 million euro bid for AC Milan star Kaka.
A website owned by Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi is reporting that a City delegation was in the city on Tuesday to open talks over the 26-year-old Brazil playmaker.
"This time they (Manchester City) are here for real with an official delegation," said the report on the mediaset website.
"Manchester City want Kaka at all costs and they have shown their cards. Garry Cook, two representatives of Sheik Mansour and Kia Joorabchian, who is acting as a mediator, met with Adriano Galliani and Ernesto Bronzetti (Milan's chief executive and commercial director) and made their offer."
The report claimed that City have offered 100 million euros (£91m million) to Milan, and would then pay Kaka 15 million euros (£13.65 million) per season.
Berlusconi was not quoted in the story, but told Corriere dello Sport he does not want to sell the player.
"I know nothing about the offer, but I hope he stays at Milan," Berlusconi said.
