Kaka Explains Milan Stay

City had tabled an estimated £107million bid for the 26-year-old midfielder but he has snubbed the chance of a move to Eastlands.

"Not even for thirty seconds did I think about leaving," he told Milan's official TV channel.

"I never wanted money or anything. I am doing very well in a place where people respect and love me and I am therefore happy to be here.

"My family has been very good to me as always, however I had no doubts as to what I would be doing this time around.

"I went with my heart, as it was never going to be an economic choice for me.

"At Milan there are wonderful people, and just to confirm, I have never and will never, ask for an increase in my wages at this club.

"Everyone here is very good to me and for this I can only thank them.

"I will be celebrating at home with a couple of friends now that this is all over, and I'm just looking ahead to moving forward with Milan.

"If the club had accepted an offer, I would have been very upset and disappointing in leaving."
