Report: Kaka deal off

Published Add your comment

Manchester City assistant manager Mark Bowen has said a move for AC Milan midfielder Kaka is "very close" but reports in the United Arab Emirates have claimed the deal is dead.

Bowen told BBC Radio Wales this morning that City were still hoping to recruit the Brazilian for whom the Eastlands side are said to have bid around £100million and offered wages of £500,000 a week for his services.

But, who broke the story of the Manchester City takeover, claim to have been told by a senior source that the deal is off.

Bowen said: "We have understood there have been negotiations for a fair while now and as far as we are concerned we believe a deal is very close."

A City delegation is believed to have been in Italy to discuss a move for the player.

But Kaka himself has said he wants to stay with Milan and "grow old" at the San Siro.
