Most recently with AC Milan, Kaka, who donned a purple Orlando City scarf, is expected be the centerpiece of Orlando City's roster, and he is the second past World Cup winner to join the league ahead of next season, following in the footsteps of New York City FC striker David Villa. He is reportedly going to go on loan to hometown club Sao Paulo FC -- the club hosting the U.S. men's national team's World Cup base camp -- to stay in shape for the 2015 campaign, just as Villa is going on loan to Melbourne City in Australia prior to beginning play with NYCFC.
