As a huge Kaka' fan, I can tell you this disturbing series of news has nearly broken me down to tears. Why does money run the world first of all? Forget the negative facts that Man City are currently, what 14th in the league or something, they're not gonna land any good players cuz no teams wanna sell their key talismans (Del Piero, Messi, Villa, Fabregas, Buffon, etc.), and the fact that they DONT EVEN PLAY A SYSTEM WITH AN ATTACKING MIDFIELDER, WHY THE MONEY?
Like that "calcio debate" thing on goal.com states, Milan is a team with a long background of history, with many greats playing for them. Man City, okay they have a decent team, but what do they have to brag about? Over the years, Kaka' has earned himself great status within the San Siro crowd, and established himself as a SYMBOL for Milan (much like Paolo Maldini). Sure, like I've said before, Kaka's style has changed drastically since the 2006-2007 season, the style which earned him Player of the Year and every award possible in all respects, but the goals fly in, his genius brought to work countlessly over the last 2 seasons. Who does that remind you of? A certain fellow I know by the name of Andriy Shevchneko.
Let's reference him. Shevchenko, also won the Player of the Year in 2004 or 2005 or something like that, almost won Milan the Champs League again, and almost won them the Scudetto. He was also amazing, clinical finisher in all respects. Then, he was brought to Chelsea, where he pretty much hit the bottom of the bottom in his career, barely managing any appearances, let alone goals. Now, even as he comes back to Milan, he's a shadow of his former self. Why did he go there? Easy. MONEY.
If Kaka' ends up going to the Premier League, chances are Man City will bring his form lower and lower, as they do not even require the second striker/attacking midfielder role, and lack teammates who can support him, as they're a team that likes to "move into" their opponents by closing their opponents in around them like a circle, then just crossing and getting goals. Kaka', 1) slalom runs, his "trademark" (since 2006-2007), require quick counterattacks, which City are incapable of,
2) crosses, notice how in attacking situations, Kaka' always pulls back a bit when Milan are attacking hard in the final (to around the top of the box, if the strikers and midfielders alike were in the box), why? Because Kaka' isnt a player whom can deal with crosses as well as other strikers, he needs the ball away from his head, and more than likely at or ahead of his feet so he can hit it. Man City plays crosses, what is Kaka' gonna do (even if they adjust the system to play Kaka' in), Man City (whenever they realize it) revolves around Petrov, and Ireland and their abilities dribble down the wings and to play in crosses, to whomever is in the middle to head home. Where is Kaka' in all of that? Waiting at the top of the 18 after some defender clears it all the way to half? That's not Kaka'.
So fu** this 120 million dollar bulls**t. Kaka' is essential, e-s-s-e-n-tial to Milan, the way him and Pato coordinate (I agree with this "Kaka cant play with Ronnie" business). Without that, Milan will be left with less talent, less "youth", and I can almost guarantee you they'll plummet without Kaka'. Just because Italian clubs arent as rich as the huge cash dumping fiends in the so-called big leagues, doesn't mean the talent there will be the talent elsewhere. The negatives of Kaka' leaving will forever outweight 120 million wads of cash on a scale, and I will pretty much give up on Man City (if I haven't done so already) and Kaka' if the deal goes through...
I'm gonna need some backup here so what I say sounds profound cuz I just wrote whatever came to mind.
