AC Milan forward Kaka is in “advanced discussions” with Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise Orlando City SC.
The club are set for their first season in the MLS and expects to finalise a deal with the Brazil international before January 2015 if negotiations were successful.
The 32-year-old missed out on Luis Felipe Scolari’s selection for the 2014 World Cup presently going on in his native Brazil.
He has nonetheless been visible among thousands of the partisan crowd, which have cheered La Selecao to a win and a draw so far in the tournament.
Kaka would be Orlando City’s first designated player on completion of the deal.
The club’s majority owner is Brazilian Flavio Augusto da Silva.
