A.C. Milan communicate they have extended Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite Kakà's contract with the club until 30 June 2013.

MILAN - Here are Adriano Galliani's comments after Kaká's signature: 'Ricky has repeatedly stated that he wants to become a symbol of this team: he is, he's the best footballer in the world, and he's decided to tie himself definitively with Milan's colors. This is a life contract, I hope that in 2013 I will make him a new contract, but now we already know Kaká will delight Milan's fans until the end of his career. It's great news for all us Milan fans.'

MILAN - 'Kaká has made this decision. He always had the conviction, but never as strong as in the last few months. Kaká is a symbol of the football expressed by Silvio Berlusconi's Milan. At the moment he is the best footballer in the world, and he's surrounded by great players, like Pirlo, Seedorf, who give this team a lot of quality. With these players Milan are the defending European Champions and World Champions.'

==================================================

Kaká is ours for life. :proud:

I suggest leave this as its own thread for a few days before merging with the other Kaká thread.

Good news. The "for life" stuff is crap though. I would love to see it and Kaká definitely seems like an exceptional character and all... but after Shevchenko fiasco, we sould never be told that. Specially with foreign players. If you were born a Milan fan in Milano and happen to be a great player maybe there is a 1/100000 chance. After Paolo retires, I'll never believe these things again.

Wonder how much money is involved though?

If this was the deal that was leaked a few months ago in the Italian media, then Kaka is no doubt the highest paid footballer in the world.

According to today's Gazzetta, its €9m per season.

It is not every few months, it is every other rumor linking him out.

The fact that the management keeps extending his contract every few months shows that they have to satisfy him in order to keep him at Milan.
As said before the last time when his contract was extanded was 2 years ago.

This thing we are joking around "extanding his contract every 6 months" isn't very accurate.

Its not about extending every few months, but if you want to be cynical, Kaka isnt signing on long term contracts so he can renew his contract after a while and get a raise (and keep his options open too). He was on a 3 year contract it seems, now got 2 years extension.

Are you sure? I'm pretty certain it was earlier than 2 years ago.
Under the FIFA (or FIGC!) rules players can sign only 5y contracts. Kaka's contract was till 2011 - 5 years = 2006 ... I don't know the month :)

Cant be FIFA rules, there are players who have 8 year long contracts I believe.
