The former Sao Paulo, AC Milan, Real Madrid and Orlando City star enjoyed a glittering career, winning Serie A, LaLiga and the Champions League, as well as the World Cup with Brazil in 2002.

However, Kaka said his transition off the pitch wasn't being taken for granted. "I went to Europe to watch some games, to feel the emotion of the game there, where football really has its highest point". "I have arrived to the conclusion that now is the moment to finish my career as a professional player".

The Brazilian left MLS in October, parting ways with Orlando City and there was much speculation on what he would do next.

After playing AC Milan Kaka nearly joined to Manchester United. Upon these news, it seems more likely he will join Milan, and take his first steps towards a management career.

She continued with a promise: "When I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear". On Dec. 13, reports emerged that Manigault had been fired by White House chief of staff John Kelly .

Kaka will be best remembered for his time at Milan. A graceful midfielder, Kaka won 92 caps for Brazil. Thank you and now I'm ready for the next journey.

Although it has been some time since we've seen him compete at the highest level, he will forever be a part of the esteemed group of players to hold Champions League, World Cup and Ballon d'Or honours, joining Ronaldinho, Rivaldo and Zinedine Zidane in that exclusive club. But in the end, he arrived at Real Madrid for 67m euros nearly at the same time with Ronaldo.

Kaka moved to Real Madrid in 2009 for 67 million euros, and although he never quite reached the heights of his Milan years, he helped the Spanish club to the 2010-11 Copa del Rey and the 2011-12 La Liga title.

Capped 95 times for his country, Kaka was a part of the Brazil squad that won the 2002 World Cup and was voted the Federation Internationale de Football Association world player of the year in 2007.
