AC Milan legend Kaka is reportedly set to begin talks with his former club over a possible future role within the setup. 

The Brazilian recently retired from his playing career whilst at MLS outfit Orlando City, and both parties seem keen to bring him back to the city.

Kaka's career at Milan was a joyous one. The last player to win the Ballon d'Or other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo was indeed the Brazilian - lifting the individual prize in 2007, a year and a half before his switch to Real Madrid.

Having spent a hugely successful six years in Milan (between 2003 and 2009), and a second stint with the club in 2013, Kaka is a fan favourite and according to Gianluca Di Marzio, he could be in line for a return.

The 35-year-old was set to meet with club officials on Wednesday, before sitting in the stands to watch his former side in their Europa League encounter with FK Austria Wien the day after.

According to the report, the meeting will determine the role and will of the player, but there are high hopes that fans will see Kaka as a member of the club soon.

Before he retired, the midfielder hinted at hanging up his boots after admitting that it was physically hurting him after each game - following an injury plagued career in his latter days:

"I finish playing a game and feel a lot of pain. My body starts to feel it, and it no longer brings me that much happiness, it takes a lot more to do the same job," he told Globoesporte (via Sky Sports).

And with a new role at Milan in mind, Kaka has also hinted that management could be in the works:

"To do it like [Zinedine] Zidane is a good idea," Kaka added. "He stopped, took some time away, decided if it was something he actually enjoyed, studied, did a course, built his way up.

"I'm that way inclined too. Now, there are people who believe I am already ready."
