The Brazilian has a clause in his contract allowing him to walk away if Milan didn’t qualify for the Champions League.

He hesitated over whether to activate it, but with the deadline looming it seems now certain he will leave San Siro.

“After 60 days of negotiations, we are all agreed, but still need to put the signatures on the contracts,” Sao Paulo Vice-President Ataide Gil Guerreiro on Redacao SporTV.

“In any case, we have resolved all the issues involving all the parties, who are Milan, the MLS, Orlando City, Kaka and Sao Paulo.”

Orlando City won’t be able to play in Major League Soccer until March 2015, so in the meantime Kaka will stay at Sao Paulo in Brazil on loan.

“He will sign for the MLS, because it is the League that signs the players, then clubs can choose three and Orlando City picked Kaka.

“The player will undergo his medical before moving to Orlando City, who will loan him to Sao Paulo for six months.

“Kaka is very emotional at coming back home and he’s in great shape. He comes to Sao Paulo with great motivation.”
