"Manchester City? It is true, I thought about that proposition," said Kaka. "I have experienced a very important period in my life, which made me understand what Milan means to me.
"That event allowed me to understand a lot of things and now I am stronger. I weighed up the pros and cons.
"With my family we took stock about what could motivate me to leave or stay. It tipped the scales in favour of Milan. Indeed there was money, but that is not enough, because it is not the most important thing to me.
"I am convinced I will have again opportunities to win titles at Milan, which is also why I gave up that trial.
"I could also experience how much the fans love me. It is essential point to me, feeling love and support. It has helped me to make my decision."
