London, Jan 14 (ANI): Manchester City has offered a sensational 175million pounds in a bid to land AC Milan superstar Kaka.

City chief executive Garry Cook and deal broker Kia Joorabchian met Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani to make the world-record bid, The Sun reported.

Milan would pocket 100 million pounds and Brazilian playmaker Kaka almost 75 million pounds for a five-year deal worth 15 million pounds a season - or 280,000 pounds per week.

According to a top Milan source, the Italians technical director Ariedo Braida was also at the meeting.

An informant at the negotiations said: The Manchester delegation were determined to make their offer but it was rejected. But our owner Silvio Berlusconi is now concerned that the player himself may want this deal to happen.

Berlusconi said: I hope Kaka stays.

But Galliano told the City delegation: We would not consider selling Kaka for 100 million pounds - it would have to be an obscene amount more.

The Italian giants have never sold any of their superstars, but admit they have been taken aback by the jaw-dropping bid.

Milan has twice in the past rejected megabucks offers from Real Madrid.

If Citys offer is eventually successful it will eclipse the world record 46 million pounds transfer that took Zinedine Zidane from Juventus to Real Madrid in 2001.

Kaka currently earns 10.8 million pounds a year at Milan and is the second-highest paid player in Serie A behind 11 million pounds -a-year Zlatan Ibrahimovic. (ANI)
