According to The New York Times, Orlando City Soccer Club, which will begin play in Major League Soccer next year, says it is in advanced discussions to sign Kaká.

“Orlando City Soccer Club is in advanced discussions with Kaka,” the club said in a statement. “Pending completion of the potential player agreement, Kaka would join Orlando City SC in January 2015 prior to the Club’s first season in Major League Soccer.”

Recently, Kaka admitted he would like to play in America and now Orlando City,a club owned by his friend Flávio Augusto da Silva are in pole position to sign him.

“One day, I would like to play in America,” he told Corriere della Sera.

“At the end of the season, I will talk to [general manager Adriano Galliani]. Not just to speak about bonuses and money – money is not the main thing for me now, and I think that is understood.

“I want to see what his ideas are and what the club’s ideas are. If it turns out I need to move, I will choose the MLS.”

Reports also suggest that the 2007 Ballon D’Or winner might stay at AC Milan in Italy or join Sao Paulo FC in Brazil until the new MLS season starts. Sao Paulo president Carlos Miguel Aidar said he was confident Kaka would return to the Brazilian club on loan this summer before jumping to MLS next year.

Recently, Spanish international David Villa joined New York City FC. Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is also expected to play in America next season.
