Kaka Makes A Move From AC Milan To Real Madrid
Brazilian soccer player Kaka made a move from AC Milan to Real Madrid. Kaka will remain with Real Madrid for at least six seasons now. He will play alongside soccer stars like Iker Casillas, Pepe, Raul, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Sergio Ramos. As of February of this year, Kaka was one of the highest paid players in the sport. It is reported $105.5 million was paid for his transfer, which makes it the second biggest transfer fee ever.
Real Madrid have signed Brazilian midfielder Kaka from AC Milan, the Primera Liga club said on their website on Tuesday. The 27-year-old international has agreed a six-year contract to become the first player to join Real since Florentino Perez returned to the presidency this month.
Reports said the transfer fee was around 68-million euros ($105.5-million) which would make the transfer the second biggest ever after Zinedine Zidane joined Real from Juventus for around 73-million euros in 2001.
Milan thanked Kaka for his contribution.
“AC Milan thanks the man Kaka and the champion Kaka for his decisive contributions to so many victories obtained in the last six years,” the Serie A club said in a statement.
“His loss on the field, though serious, can be filled. It will, however, be very difficult to fill the void left by Kaka the man.”
