Cadena said Florentino Perez, just beginning his second stint with the Spanish powerhouse, sealed the 65-million-euro deal with AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani and Kaka's father Bosco Leite.

Kaka will sign up for five years with a salary worth nine million euros a year, it added.

Kaka, the 2007 world and European player of the year, is currently in Brazil with the national team ahead of a World Cup qualifier against Uruguay.

It comes on the same day as Kaka was telling La Gazzetto dello Sport he had no intention of leaving AC Milan.

"I'll tell you this for the last time, the very last. I don't want to leave Milan. To the millions of Milan fans, I tell you that I've made my choice. I've said I want to stay. Leave me in peace, please," Kaka told the newspaper.
