AC Milan's Kaka continues to ponder Orlando City move

Reports are suggesting that Kaka has entered into a verbal agreement with MLS expansion franchise Orlando City SC.

The AC Milan playmaker suggested to Corriere della Sera that he would one day like to play in the USA and it is believed that he could make his way to Orlando when the Lions enter MLS in 2015.

Spanish daily AS has reported that Brazil international Kaka has verbally agreed to join Orlando City but a club spokesman did not comment on the rumours when quizzed by the Orlando Sentinel.

Kaka is a known friend of Orlando City owner Flavio Augusto da Silva and speculation continues to emerge that he will be the next big star to join MLS.

The former Real Madrid ace said: "One day, I would like to play in America.

"Let's see. At the end of the season, I will talk to [general manager Adriano Galliani]. Not just to speak about bonuses and money - money is not the main thing for me now, and I think that is understood. I want to see what his ideas are and what the club's ideas are. If it turns out I need to move, I will choose the MLS."

However, an interview with Brazilian daily Globo Esporte after scoring twice in the weekend's 3-0 win over Chievo Verona poses that this summer's World Cup and the future of the Rossoneri is at the forefront of the 31-year olds mind.

"I'd rather wait, let things go slowly and talk later," Kaka said.

"I have an excellent relationship with Flavio, we are good friends, but this is unknown. I want to take it one step at a time.

"I'm happy here in Milan, I hope to continue here, but let's just decide at the end of the season. There's a lot to happen yet, and Galliani and I will decide what's best for me and Milan."
