Milan Fans Rejoice
Fans of AC Milan (such as myself) are overjoyed by the news that Kaka has rejected the possible transfer to Manchester City.
The 107 million euro bid would have more than doubled the previous highest transfer.
Man City chairman said, "The club felt that it was unlikely that the two parties could reach common ground for an agreement. The discussions reached only a preliminary stage and the player was not involved at any time."
Over 500 Milan fans waited outside of Kaka's home hoping to catch a glimpse of the player. Kaka who had said that he hoped to "grow old" at Milan said his aim is to become the captain of the team.
Some feared that Kaka's father would possibly convince Kaka to take the money, however this did not happen and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was very happy to hear that Kaka has placed values such as friendship and fan affection over money.
Many people had publicly stated that Kaka moving to Man City would be both a terrible move for Kaka personally, and for the state of football in general. Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas and even Giorgio Armani all stated that Kaka would not be happy in Manchester.
Now that this circus and distraction is behind Milan, hopefully they can concentrate on winning the Scudetto.
