Kaka played his final match as Orlando's season ended in October, and in November was reportedly offered a director role at Serie A club Milan.

He also indicated he could continue his post-playing career in football.

The former Brazil worldwide has, along with Sao Paulo, been linked with a return to AC Milan, where he won the Champions League, Serie A and the Ballon d'Or during the peak of his career.

"I would like to take part in a club in a role more like... a manager, a sporting director - someone between the field and the club". I wanted to thank you so much for your football, for our 17 years of friendship and for joining me in Orlando.

"I needed time to think and take a decision calmly", Kaka said.

"Milan recently made that proposal so that I had there in the day-to-day of the club".

The 35-years-old signed for three seasons upon his arrival from Sao Paulo in 2015, and in view of the club's decision and his inability to maintain his status on another MLS team, he accepted retirement to start a career as a coach.
