Galliani in Madrid to attend Perez celebration, not to discuss deal

AC Milan have refuted suggestions that Brazilian playmaker Kaka is in talks with Real Madrid. Reports on Tuesday suggested the Rossoneri had reached an agreement with their Spanish counterparts regarding the sale of their South American superstar. An offer of around £65million was believed to have been agreed, with Kaka set to hold talks with Real in order to thrash out personal terms. The former World Player of the Year has been strongly linked with a move to the Primera Liga for some time, with Madrid widely touted as his likely destination. Those rumours have intensified of late, following Florentino Perez's return to the Real presidential hot-seat. The new Santiago Bernabeu supremo has made no secret of his admiration for Kaka in the past, and was said to have held talks with Milan general manager Adriano Gailliani about a summer swoop. However, Milan insist their man was in Madrid this week after being invited to attend a dinner with Perez to celebrate his return to power, not to discuss any potential deal for Kaka. A statement released by the club read: "The general manager of the Rossoneri, Adriano Galliani, is in the city of Madrid exclusively for the investiture dinner of Florentino Perez, the new president of Real Madrid."
