Kaka's playing days may not be over after all. After leaving Orlando City in emotional fashion, the Brazilian has been heavily linked with a return to AC Milan in a directorial role.
The 2007 Ballon d'Or winner was back at the San Siro on Thursday to see Milan to take on Austria Wien in the Europa League and is believed to have held talks with the club's managing director, Marco Fassone.
Kaka enjoyed two previous spells at Milan, the first first in his peak years between 2003 and 2009 and then again during the 2013/14 season.
The 35-year-old won one Serie A title and the 2007 Champions League with the Rossoneri, becoming a firm fan favourite at the club during his 307 appearances, in which he scored 104 goals.
However, it seems like a return to Milan won't be happening just yet, as Kaka looks set to take up one last challenge in his glittering career before calling it quits.
He's already conquered Brazil, Italy, Spain and United States, and now Corriere Dello Sport are reporting that Kaka is close to agreeing a switch to join Chinese Super League outfit Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng and become the latest high-profile player to make the move to the Far East.
A slew of Brazilians, including the likes of Ramires, Oscar, Alexandre Pato, Alex Teixeira and Renato Augusto, are playing in China - and Kaka's arrival would be yet another statement of intent.

Guizhou finished in eighth place in the league last term and are managed by Gregorio Manzano, who was Atletico Madrid manager before Diego Simeone took the reins.
Their most well-known player is Mario Suarez, who has played for the likes of Atletico, Fiorentina, Valencia and Watford.
