Brazilian playmaker Kaka has revealed he will move on loan to Sao Paulo before joining new Major League Soccer club Orlando City following the mutual termination of his contract with AC Milan.

I Rossoneri announced Kaka's second spell with the club was over once he exercised a get-out clause after their failure to qualify for European football next season, despite still having one year left to run on his deal.

He will now join Sao Paulo, with whom he began his youth and professional career before being sold to the Italian giants in 2003, and will then link up with Orlando City, who will become a team in the MLS in the spring of 2015.

"I've always said I wanted to play in the USA and now I have reached an agreement to play there," Kaka told Milan's television channel.

"Orlando City is a new team with a good project and the owner [Flavio Augusto da Silva] is Brazilian. I'm also happy to return to Sao Paulo. It's really satisfying for me."

Kaka only returned to the San Siro on a free transfer last summer after four years at Real Madrid. The 32-year-old, who won a Serie A title and the UEFA Champions League in his first spell at Milan, scored seven goals in 30 league appearances in the 2013/14 season.

In total, the 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year scored 104 goals in 307 appearances for I Rossoneri.
