Brazilian soccer star Kaka is unsettled at Real Madrid and possibly on his way out.

And while a return to AC Milan is reportedly a distinct possibility this summer, somewhere down the road the former FIFA World Player of the Year will probably make a move further west – all the way to MLS.

At least, that is according to Kaka's agent Diogo Kotscho, who told the New York Post his client wants to not only live in the United States but also play in MLS.

"We don't speak about negotiation even if it is or not rumor. What I can say to you right now is that Kaka have a dream to live in US and play in MLS," Kotscho said. "If isn't now, in the future probably he will join MLS."

Kaka's affinity for the United States is well-known. He vacations in Miami, and reportedly already bought a posh pad in midtown Manhattan.

AC Milan is reportedly trying to bring Kaka back to the San Siro, where he played when he was voted FIFA World Player of the Year in 2007.

AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani told gazzetta.it, however, "It is 100 percent impossible for Kaka to return to AC Milan. He still has a three-year contract with Real Madrid and a salary which is impossible to pay with the Italian tax system."

At just 30 years old, Kaka presumably has several good years ahead of him, enough that he would still be a coup for any MLS team even at the end of that Real Madrid deal and especially if he made an earlier exit from the Spanish giant.
