AC Milan insiders are convinced Kaka would welcome the chance to quit Real Madrid and return to his former club. Corriere dello Sport says Kaka wants to return to the San Siro, where he would be guaranteed a big welcome back by fans, who were singing his name during victory over Napoli.

Kaka is excited about the prospect of playing with Alexandre Pato and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in an exciting attack - and feels more in synch with those two than former Milan teammate Ronaldinho.

The only concern for Milan staff at the moment is Kaka's fitness.
