Legendary Brazilian midfielder Kaka has rejoined his former club, AC Milan.
The Italian giants finished in third place in Serie A last year, a whole 15 points behind the champions, Juventus. Kaka previously played for Milan for six years before signing for Real Madrid.
The 31-year-old attacking midfielder originally began his career with São Paulo at the age of eight. He signed his first contract at the age of 15 and spent six years in his home country. At the age of 21 he signed for a major team in Europe, AC Milan, for a fee of €8.5million.
He played 193 games and scored 70 goals in his four years during his first stint in Italy. He then signed for Real Madrid for the second highest transfer fee ever of €65million, second to only the €75 million paid for Zinedine Zidane.
He's played for Real Madrid ever since, scoring 23 goals in 85 games. That is until he re-signed for AC Milan two days ago.
Kaka signed on a free transfer for Milan only four years after Madrid paid them €65 million for him. He signed on a two-year deal having endured a frustrating time t the Bernabeu, where he spent several spells on the sidelines due to injury.
Kaka said: "Four years have passed and now I'm back. It's been two weeks that I thought if I could come back, a return to Milan would be ideal for me.
"I've been dreaming of hearing the fans sing my name in San Siro again. I was very sad to leave this team and now it's great to be back. I'm very happy."
