Milan playmaker Kaka has admitted that he could move to England, if he ever left the Rossoneri.

However, the Brazilian has confirmed that he expects to stay with Milan for the rest of his career.

“I think I’ll remain in Milan for the rest of my career,” said the World and European Player of the Year.

“I’ve adapted to life here and am settled in the city. I don’t see myself in another place, but you never know what will happen.

“It would be impossible to play for another Italian club after Milan, so it would be Barcelona or Real Madrid or one of the teams in England always fighting for the title: Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool or Chelsea.”

Kaka was talking ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Premier League leaders Arsenal.

“People have called this tie against Arsenal a match between an ageing team and a new, young side,” Kaka told the Daily Mail.

“It’s a fair comparison because the average age in the Milan first team is 32 but that does not mean we will struggle. Experience counts for everything at this stage.

“When I came here four years ago, the likes of Maldini and Seedorf had already won every title they could win. But they were hungry to keep winning.

“We have won them all again in the past few years. To have that level of experience in a tie like this is so important.”

The Brazilian admits he enjoys watching Arsenal and sees similarities with their style of play and that of Brazil.

“Arsenal play football the way we like to see it in Brazil,” he said.

“They play with style, changing position, moving the ball quickly. If you say Arsenal, that’s what we think of. It is different to the normal English style.

“Manchester United are similar but Liverpool are very English, direct and more tactical with the defence closing down quickly.

“This tie against Arsenal will be more open and interesting than one against Liverpool or Chelsea. This is a game we can enjoy. It can be beautiful.

“This is the championship that marks you down in history, far more so than any domestic league,” said Kaka.

“But you can only truly appreciate what it feels like to win the Champions League after you’ve seen it snatched away from you.

“I lost in the quarter-finals to Deportivo La Coruna, in the semi-finals to Barcelona and, of course, to Liverpool in the 2005 final in Istanbul. I knew how it felt to see the trophy slip away.

“Athens was the realisation of a dream, alongside winning the World Cup with Brazil in 2002. All those disappointments in Europe went through my mind at the final whistle and that feeling of fulfilment is something I want to experience again.”
