Kaka deal looks off but Bellamy joins Manchester CityJanuary 20th, 2009 - 12:35 pm ICT by IANS
London, Jan 20 (DPA) AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has said that he has no intention of selling Brazilian forward Kaka to Manchester City.City have, though, completed the signing of Wales international Craig Bellamy from West Ham United.
Speaking on Italian television, Berlusconi said Monday that he thought Kaka did not wish to leave, and so would not force through a deal, despite an offer of 91 million pounds ($130.8 million).
Sources at City, though, claim that it was they who broke off discussions, though they would give no reason.
Bellamy, meanwhile, has signed for an undisclosed fee, reported to be around 14 million pounds.
“I am delighted to be working with Craig once more,” manager Mark Hughes told the club website. “He is an outstanding player who provides us with qualities that we are slightly lacking. He has blistering pace, has bags of of enthusiasm and has a superb attitude to training. He will be a great addition to the squad.”
