Milan midfielder Riccardo Kaka is on the verge of completing his €120 million transfer to Manchester City, however, as part of his deal, he has demanded that the English side install a special release clause in his contract.
Il Corriere Dello Sport claims the Premier League side have accepted the request which could see them lose out €55m on their investment within a year of landing their man.
Kaka has asked for a €65m buy-out clause, which will allow him to leave the club in 2010 if the promises and plans Manchester City make do not materialise.
In addition, the Brazilian ace has demanded a 20 percent rise in his annual salary as compensation for not being able to play in the Champions League next season.
City are currently struggling in the league and European football seems highly unlikely. The new deal, if signed, will see Kaka take home around €18m per season in wages.
The City deal is becoming a nightmare for the player. On Friday night he was seen crying at Milanello; such is the torment surrounding his possible Milan exit.
Arabian news agencies had suggested that Kaka had signed a deal last night but there has been no confirmation from either club regarding these rumours just yet.
The Rossoneri have allowed the player to talk with City and the Italian club are willing to negotiate with regard to the money on offer.
