Tax problems made re-signing Kaka impossible, admits Galliani
Rome: AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has poured cold water on the club`s purported bid to re-sign Kaka from Real Madrid, following his consultation with a tax accountant to ascertain the financial validity of a move.
The Rossoneri have embarked on a summer-long search for a high-profile signing in order to pacify irate fans over the sales of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to Paris Saint-Germain, only to see their attempts to bring back the Brazilian stopped in their tracks.
Gazzetta dello Sport claims the feedback received when Galliani consulted a financial professional`s opinion earlier on Monday morning was negative, and his latest statements have confirmed those claims.
"The tax problem? It`s all true," the official admitted to Milan Channel. "It`s impossible. We asked the opinion of a tax accountant who said it was `too risky`."
Milan could now turn their attention to M`Baye Niang in order to reinforce Massimiliano Allegri`s options, after talks of a crisis grew widespread following the side`s 1-0 home loss to newly-promoted Sampdoria on Sunday.
Kaka completed a move to the Santiago Bernabeu for a fee of €68.5 million in 2009, but has struggled for playing time following Jose Mourinho`s appointment as coach.
The arrival of Luka Modric in a €42m move from Tottenham is only expected to further blunt the 30-year-old`s prospects.
