Milan’s Brazilian international Kaka has urged his side to make a bid for his compatriot Ronaldinho if he becomes available.
Kaka believes that Barcelona are currently on the cusp of a decline after three years at the top in Spain, and he believes that Ronaldinho may become available.
“Teams live in cycles,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “I don’t know if Barcelona’s cycle will end this year, but it will happen soon.
“For three seasons, they have been the best in Europe. They touched the top and not all of their players will wait for the cycle to restart.
“(Paolo) Maldini at Milan did, but I don’t know if Ronaldinho will do the same at Barcelona. If he puts himself on the market, I hope Milan will sign him.”
Kaka believes Milan are still one of the best teams in Europe and are one of the main contenders for this season’s Champions League.
“Would it be surprising for us to win it? Not for us and our supporters, but it might be abroad. We started badly in the Italian league, but we are still a team with history and tradition.
“But it is true that tradition doesn’t make any difference on the pitch or win you games.”
Kaka added that the prospect of facing Chelsea and former Milan striker Andrii Shevchenko would not be his ideal draw.
“Milan versus Chelsea, should both sides progress, wouldn’t be ideal for Andrei or for our supporters.
“Should it happen, though, I think it would be right to applaud him, and I think the supporters would.”
