Manchester City are continuing their pursuit of Kaka with the player's spokesperson admitting it is "not impossible" a £100million deal could still be done for the AC Milan superstar.
The Blues are said to be prepared to bid a world record £100million to land the Brazilian but initial reaction from Italy has not been positive, with Kaka giving an interview stating he remains committed to the San Siro outfit.
The midfielder's agent Diogo Kotscho has hinted, however, that further negotiations are almost certain, telling BBC Radio Five Live: "If Milan agree and give us authorisation to talk with them, we would speak to Manchester City."
He added: "It is not impossible (that Kaka could sign for City). But for us it is not only about money, we don't need only money.
"We have to have a good project and a winning project. It can be a project for the long term (to be) a top team in the world."
Behind the scenes there are some inside City who remain highly confident a transfer will be brokered at some point this month.
It is felt Kaka wants to know more about the proposals City are keen to put to him and there is a suggestion Kaka's father may have talks with City executive chairman Garry Cook at some point over the next 10 days to discover the club's precise intentions.
Such a move would be hugely significant as Kaka's father has played a key role in his son's career and any decision to leave Milan would almost certainly require his agreement.
The City delegation that flew out of Italy on Tuesday night privately felt negotiations with Milan had gone well, building on contacts that were initially made well over a month ago.
Although he has not been working on the Blues' behalf, Kia Joorabchian has been used as an intermediary and is likely to be involved further given his extensive network of South American contacts, should talks progress.
