The 2002 FIFA World Cup winner is considered a Rossoneri legend in Italy.

AC Milan legend Kaka has stated that he will be returning to the club soon as it has finally regained its "DNA". The 36-year old Brazilian retired in 2017 after an amazing career ranging from playing at the San Siro, Bernabeu, Sao Paulo, and then finally at Orlando City.

The 2007 Ballon d'Or winner has indicated that he is not walking away from the game yet. The former attacking midfielder mentioned that he is close to a reunion with former Rossoneri teammates in Italy.

The 2002 World Cup winner told Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio that he is aiming to join Leonardo and Paolo Maldini in the club's board.

"My comeback to Milan? Just a matter of time. I will learn about the roles alongside Leonardo and Maldini while my children are still young as they are my priority for now. Milan has regained its DNA with Leonardo and Maldini," Kaka said.

"I do not see myself becoming a coach, I’d rather have a similar position to Leonardo. This new management has got the Rossoneri DNA. Milan are trying to go back to the top," he further added.

The elite playmaker spent six glorious seasons in the Serie A with Milan before heading to Real Madrid, and then returning for a season again. He finally moved to the MLS, to ply his trade with Orlando City and was then loaned to Sao Paolo in 2014. With the Italian club, he won one Scudetto and the Champions League.

His time in Spain proved to mark an end to his significant career with limited opportunities due to the presence of Mesut Ozil. He then had a resurgence with the San Siro outfit again, before moving to the land of Hollywood.
