After losing a number of high profile players in the summer and after losing Alexandre Pato a few weeks ago, AC Milan are finally on course to bring in a few high profile players before the end of the January transfer window as they have been linked with both Mario Balotelli and their former star Kaka. The 30-year-old Brazilian international moved to Real Madrid in a then-world record deal of £ 62 million. However, he has struggled for form and fitness during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu. Now, the Brazil international is keen to bring his Spanish career to an end by returning to AC Milan.

The AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani revealed that it would be financially impossible to bring Kaka to the San Siro unless the player decides to take a wage cut. They have been holding talks with the Spanish club over the last couple of weeks, while they have also been positions with the Premier league champions Manchester City over the sale of Mario Balotelli. The 22-year-old has caused a lot of problems at the club, and he is keen to return to Italy. They are similar striker Stephan El Shaarawy has said that it would be a dream come true to play alongside either Balotelli or Kaka.

“It would be a dream to play with Kaka. I would welcome him with open arms, and maybe it can happen, but even with Mario I would feel good,” said the youngster, who has been a breath of fresh air for AC Milan. Due to the lack of high profile players, AC Milan have struggled in the league this season. They are closer to the bottom half of the table than to the top three positions, which will give them Champions league football in the subsequent season.
