Veteran AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini is facing the probable disappointment of losing Kaka to Manchester City. A report in the Daily Mail quotes Maldini saying: "The decision rests with the club, but I can only stress that Kaka is very important and that his exit would be hugely negative.

"This deal sounds incredible to me. No player is worth this much, not even Cristiano Ronaldo. But he seems pretty calm about everything."
