AC Milan president Adriano Galliani has denied rumours that he is trying to bring former star Kaka back to the San Siro.
Kaka made over 190 appearances for Milan over six years, scoring 70 goals in the process. His time in Milan sparked a huge amount of media interest surrounding his future, and the Brazilian eventually made the move to Real Madrid for £60m.
Despite this massive transfer fee, Kaka has failed to recreate the form for Real Madrid that he showed so often in a Milan shirt. Kaka has fallen down the pecking order in the Madrid first team, with Kaka only making 19 league appearances this season.
Galliani had previously tried to re-sign Kaka on-loan a number of times, but the president has now ruled out any kind of move for the former Milan man.
Speaking to Italian football magazine Legaseriea, Galliani said: "Kaka has very high wages and is now 31 years old, so I can rule out any move to Milan."
A big decider that ensured a move for Kaka was definitely ruled out was the £17m signing of Mario Balotelli, which tightened the wage budget considerably.
And president Galliani insisted that he is ready to promote Riccardo Saponara to the first team, after the 21 year-old midfielder signed from Empoli in January.
The youngster returned to Empoli on-loan but Galliani is adamant he is the man to send Milan back to glory.
"There are no restrictions on using a trequartista," he added. "That change in the team should be a natural evolution and that's why we bought Saponara."
