Orlando City Star Kaka Continues to Top MLS Salary Figures

Official figures from the MLS have confirmed that Kaka is indeed the highest paid player at the major league soccer for a third consecutive campaign.

The Brazilian plays for Orlando City after having completed his move from Real Madrid three years ago. The move straight away placed him as the top earner in the MLS, especially as it coincided with the departure of David Beckham from the division.

This figure places in just above Sebastian Giovinco, whose contract with Toronto pays him £ 5.5 million each year.

Kaka Confirms Departure from Orlando City

Former Real Madrid and AC Milan star Kaka says that he is set to return to Brazilian football where it all began for him.

The last player to win the FIFA Ballon d’Or award apart from the duo of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka is regarded as one of the finest Brazilian players in the last two decades. He has been with Orlando City since 2014. Even though his time with the MLS outfit has been on and off due to a niggling injuries, he has made a reasonable impact in the competition. Kaka would have liked to have made the same impact as David Beckham, but he has not come close to such a high standard.

Can Kaka Fire Orlando City To MLS glory In 2017?

Kaka has been there and done it all during his playing career but the Brazil legend will be quietly confident of securing more silverware before hanging up his boots in the near future. Orlando City, one of Major League Soccer’s newer franchises, finished eighth in the Eastern Conference last season and fans will be expecting Jason Kreis’ men to improve ahead of what could be a defining year for the club.

Orlando have plenty of potential and Kaka, one of their designated players, is still able to influence matches on a weekly basis. With that in mind, Kreis may continue to build his side around the Brazilian – especially as he has formed a solid relationship with the vast majority of his team-mates.

Will Kaka’s Final Season in Orlando be a Special One?

In his prime, Kaka was simply sublime, a true definition of dedication, natural talent and undeniable skill that left many an opponent trailing in his wake as he zoomed in on goal or sought out that killer pass.

For the man born Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, the list of honours is exceptional with club, country and individually.

Winner of the Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year award in 2007, winner of the Champions League with Milan in 06/07, winner of Serie A in 03/04, La Liga in 11/12 with Real Madrid AND winner of the FIFA World Cup in 2002 with Brazil just scratches the surface on Kaka’s phenomenal career.
