Manchester City assistant manager Mark Bowen insists they are close to signing Brazilian superstar Kaka from AC Milan.
Reports says City have made a Ã‚Â£100million bid for the 26-year-old.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We believe the deal is very close,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Bowen. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are selling the future plans of the club to the player.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve read a lot about his love of Milan Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and that goes without saying Ã¢â‚¬â€œ but even when people said the deal was dead that was not our understanding.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are still hopeful of signing Kaka,Ã¢â‚¬Â added Bowen. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The situation has been a surprise to everyone but obviously negotiations have been going for a fair while.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“How close we are I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know, but our understanding is that it is very much a strong possibility that Kaka will be coming to Manchester City.Ã¢â‚¬Â
City are ready to offer Kaka Ã‚Â£15million in wages, according to reports.
