MADRID, Spain (AP) - Real Madrid has announced the signing of Brazilian star Kaka from AC Milan.
Madrid gave no financial details but reports on Monday said the Spanish club will pay Milan euro65 million ($92 million) for the attacking midfielder, making it one of the richest deals in soccer history.
The largest previous transfer was set by Zinedine Zidane when he joined Madrid from Juventus for US$65 million in 2001.
Milan also confirmed Kaka's transfer to Madrid on its Web site.
Kaka, who passed a medical in the northeastern Brazilian city of Recife earlier Monday, has signed a six-year contract.
