AC Milan's star player Kaka has rejected a record-breaking transfer deal from Manchester City.

The English club is said to have offered a staggering 100 million for the star midfielder, but he says he wants to stay at the Italian side.

The 26-year-old, who last year was voted the best player in the world by other players and managers, said he wanted to grow old at Milan.

"My aim is to become at some point in the future the captain of this team."

The 100 million deal is more than double the current record of 47 million for the signing of France's Zinedine Zidane from Juventus to Real Madrid in 2001.
