After over a year of talks, rumors, figures, and non-deals, the second most drawn out transfer saga (nothing comes close to Ronaldo) is over.

It's finally over.

As reported earlier today, Milan has finally made it official, moving superstar forward, Kaka, to Real Madrid for the reportedly staggering price of $92 million. This move marks one of the biggest transfers of the decade, and is the first of many expected big moves by the Spanish powerhouse. As for Milan, it was a move that needed to be made.

Financially, and with regards to the team, Milan simply could not refuse.

With the money gained, Milan can both lock up those players who will be absolutely vital to their success in the coming years (Pato, I'm looking in your general direction), and bring in new stars to roam San Siro (Cristiano Ronaldo throwing his hat into yet another ring).

If Milan uses this money to sign some big talent as well as some above average defenders, while also getting more production from some of their current talent (Your Marco Boriellos of the world), then they absolutely have a team that can contend for some trophies in the coming season.
