Marco Fassone, the AC Milan general manager, has said that he expects to know in the next day or two if Kaka would consider returning to the club in a new capacity.

Kaka spent seven years playing for Milan and he announced his retirement at the beginning of last week. At the same time, he said that he has held some preliminary talks over a director’s role.

Speaking to the team’s official website, Fassone said, “We exchanged a few ideas for his future and that of Milan, and he has allowed himself the month of December to decide what to do. I think that there could be the chance we’ll be in touch again before Christmas to see whether there will be the opportunity to continue this fairy-tale together.”

In 2004 Kaka won the Serie A title with the team and then in 2007 they won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

However, the team are currently struggling and have now lost two consecutive matches after a couple of wins at the beginning of the month. They are 14 points behind the top four in the league table.

Speaking last week Fassone said that this Christmas “is going to be strange, with a lot of work” and he added that, “It’s the first time Serie A does not have a break, and this peculiarity made us think that it was the right thing for us to stick together.”

The team are currently at a training camp and cancelled their celebrations. Fassone said that at the camp they will be spending more time together to “exchange ideas, discover what is not working and try to resolve the problems because the group need to understand what it means to be Milan and the significance of this shirt.”
