AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists they cannot afford to buy back Kaka from Real Madrid.

Milan powerbrokers have made it no secret they'd love to re-sign the Brazilian.

"When he went to Madrid I was moved," Galliani told Sky Sport 24 on Tuesday.

"But his costs are too high for Milan. He would have to take a much bigger wage cut than Cesc Fabregas did to go to Barcelona.

The official added: "We would have to sign Kaka permanently, otherwise, due to the Spanish fiscal system, a loan move would create huge cost problems.

"Kaka can only move on loan within Spain. For us to sign him would mean doing so permanently and not on loan.

"I'm sorry to disappoint the fans, but the Kaka hypothesis is unfeasible."
