    This breaking news is now on sky sports news and setanta sports, just another proof that money cant buy you everything.............Well done Kaka!

    AC Milan playmaker Kaka has turned down a lucrative move to Manchester City.

    "Kaka is staying at Milan," said a club spokesman, after team owner Silvio Berlusconi told Italian television the 26-year-old had opted not to leave.

    City issued a statement saying they had ended talks, believing it was unlikely a deal could be struck with Milan.

    "A transfer must work commercially, financially, results on the field and within City's broader community," said executive chairman Garry Cook.

    "The discussions reached only a preliminary stage and the player was not involved at any time." added Cook, who spent Monday in meetings with Milan officials and Kaka's father and advisor Bosco Leite. "No commercial terms were framed."

    City's bid for Kaka was reportedly worth a £100m, more than £50m than the current world transfer fee record Real Madrid paid to Juventus to sign Zinedine Zidane in 2001 and that the Premier League club were willing to pay the Brazilian weekly wages of £500,000.

    "That's the end of the story," Berlusconi told Italian television. "I'm truly delighted to have kept Kaka at Milan.

    "Kaka is a great champion and a great man. He's refused the offer from Manchester City giving privilege to Milan, his companions and his fans.

    "He said it's because money isn't everything in life. Kaka is staying with us and we're delighted. Money is important, but there are also other things that are important.

    "The fans are delighted too. Turning down so much money is something to admire."

    Earlier hundred of Milan fans had protested outside the club's headquarters over the possible sale of the Brazilian to Manchester City in a £100m transfer.

    Fans had also gathered outside Kaka's house and he responded by beating his hand three times on his heart while holding a Milan shirt.
