Kaka will remain an AC Milan player and will not be making a move to Manchester City according to Italian Prime Minister and Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi. "Kaka is staying with Milan. For Kaka, money isn't everything," Berlusconi told Italian television.

"When I heard him say that he prefers to stay, that he doesn't feel like he has lost the opportunity to earn a higher salary and that he feels privileged to wear the shirt, he values the closeness and the friendships, the heat and affection that all the fans have shown him even in these last two days, I said 'hallelujah' and we hugged."
