Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has launched a stinging attack on Real Madrid after their attempts to lure Brazilian midfielder Kaka to Spain.
Galliani told Spanish sports daily Marca: “For 50 years Real have been the greatest club in the world but now they have thrown all that out the window.
“This Real does nothing to honour its history or its name.”
During his campaign to be president Ramon Calderon said he had a personal deal with Kaka and that he would bring him to the Bernabeu when elected.
The announcement came after Kaka had signed a contract extension with Milan until 2011.
“Milan declares war on Real – you can write it like that – and it will do everything it can to make their life impossible,” Galliani added.
“Kaka is not going to leave here, but if he did it would not be to Real. No one from this club will sit down and negotiate with them because what they are doing is not how great clubs work together.
“I want to clarify that these remarks are against the current Real (management) and not the club that we all know and love.”
