Agent: Cash will not decide Kaka deal

Published Add your comment

Kaka's spokesman Diogo Kotscho has warned Manchester City it will take more than just money to tempt the Brazilian to quit AC Milan.

As the football world holds its breath for the next move in an amazing saga that could net the Brazilian an eye-watering £500,000 weekly salary, Kotscho has warned City Kaka would not just 'do a Robinho' by signing for the cash with no guarantees about the future.

"Kaka wouldn't do anything based on money," Kotscho told Corriere dello Sport. "He would never do something like Robinho, who, just to earn more, contented himself with a solution that was not a winning one."

City are now waiting to see what effect their whistle-stop trip to Milan has had.

AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi would only state on Tuesday night that he was 'hopeful' Kaka would remain at the San Siro, which hardly smacks of confidence.

It is thought Milan would receive a world record £100million as a transfer fee for Kaka, money which could be reinvested in a squad that has slipped dramatically since winning the Champions League in 2007.

While it has to be wondered how City can find themselves offering such vast sums for Kaka while failing to agree terms with West Ham, Blackburn and Newcastle for Scott Parker, Roque Santa Cruz and Shay Given, the prospect of another famous Brazilian arriving at Eastlands will raise the Blues support to fever pitch.

It has been suggested Kaka's name and the prospect of playing with him has been used as a bargaining tool in other City transfer discussions although, as yet, the club are remaining completely tight-lipped.

Indeed, manager Mark Hughes claims not to be a fan of the January transfer window at all.

"I don't particularly like the transfer window because you have to wait to address things that could be sorted out a lot more quickly under the old system," he told the Manchester Evening News.
