Galliani: Kaka wages too high

Kaka left Milan for Real Madrid in a £56 million deal in the summer of 2009, but has failed to reach the heights he did in Italy after a loss of form and persistent injury troubles.

However, Brazil team-mate Pato maintains that the Serie A leaders would be happy to take him back again.

"I'd love to see Kaka return to Milan. We would welcome him with open arms if he decides to move on," Pato was quoted as saying by Sky Sport.

Meanwhile, Piersilvio Berlusconi, son of Milan president Silvio, claimed that he is keen to see former Inter player Mario Balotelli back at the San Siro in the colours of Milan.

Balotelli has revealed his desire to join Milan one day, but Berlusconi was not hopeful of doing a deal any time soon.

"Balotelli is a great player and in general terms would be a good signing for Milan, but it's too early to talk about it," he said.
