Real Madrid sign Kaká from AC Milan

It is finally official. Kaká is a Real Madrid player, and Floretino Perez' first signing as president. AC Milan has officially announced the deal on their website, though Real hasn't as their site seems to be down at the moment.

The 27-year-old international has agreed to a six-year contract to become the first player to join Real since Florentino Perez returned to the presidency this month.

Reports said the transfer fee was around 68 million euros ($94.05 million) which would make it the second biggest ever after Zinedine Zidane joined Real from Juventus for around 73 million euros in 2001.

UPDATE: Real's website is online again and has announced the deal as well.

"Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, Kaka, is a Real Madrid player after an agreement was reached with AC Milan. The Brazilian footballer has now successfully passed all medical tests. Kaka has signed a contract with Real Madrid for the next six seasons." said,

Kaka completed a routine medical earlier on Monday in Recife, where Brazil face Paraguay at home in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday.

Kaka said he was leaving the Italians on good terms.

“Everything I’ve always done for Milan has been by mutual agreement, from the moment I arrived until my departure today,” he told a news conference at the Brazil team hotel. “I’m leaving by the front door.”

“I’ve won everything that I wanted as a player and this is a new motivation for me.”

“I’m sure Real Madrid will build a competitive team which can start winning titles again.”

The official unveiling in Madrid is likely to take place at the end of the month, after the Confederations Cup in South Africa.

“We are working on building a good team, an important team, and this has only just begun,” Perez told radio station Onda Cero.

Milan thanked Kaka for his contribution.

“AC Milan thanks the man Kaka and the champion Kaka for his decisive contributions to so many victories obtained in the last six years,” the Serie A club said in a statement.

“His loss on the field, though serious, can be filled. It will, however, be very difficult to fill the void left by Kaka the man.”

Kaka has long been a target for Real Madrid since former president Ramon Calderon promised to sign him in his election campaign in 2006 but failed to deliver.

Calderon resigned in January paving the way for Perez to come back three years after he stood down, and he was returned unopposed to the post.
