Orlando City SC’s long pursuit of Brazilian star Ricardo Kaka looks to finally become a reality. 

ESPN’s Taylor Twellman tweeted on Thursday that Orlando City and Major League Soccer have reached an agreement with Kaka to become the Lions’ first Designated Player. 

Though OCSC don’t begin their inaugural MLS campaign until spring of 2015, Twellman also reported that the former AC Milan midfielder will join Brazilian side Sao Paulo FC, his boyhood club, on-loan until 2015. 

The Orlando Sentinel confirmed the report, stating that Kaka triggered his release clause from Milan after the Italian side failed to qualify to European competition next season. 

Orlando City host Sao Paulo on Friday during an international friendly at 8 p.m. ET.

  1. I am supporting the Orlando City because of transfer Kaka in this transfer season. After the transfer, I am watching the games of him and the team. The stadium is quite good for playing and can be used for national clubs and big tournaments too. Kaka won't play in World Cup 2018 is worse for me :(
