Kaka was officially unveiled by Orlando City SC on Tuesday, ahead of the club's move to Major League Soccer in 2015.

Kaka was released from his contract at AC Milan on Monday and now becomes one of the biggest signings in MLS history. While his best days are behind him, he's still a very good player who has recent UEFA Champions League experience. Orlando City also announced that Kaka will be sent on a six-month loan to Sao Paulo FC, his hometown club, and will return to the States in January.

Kaka is set to become the first signing for Orlando City, who will begin playing in Major League Soccer in 2015, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Kaka, who was the 2007 Ballon d'Or winner, is currently on his second stint with Serie A side AC Milan, who he joined from Real Madrid last summer. He had seven goals and four assists in 30 appearances with the Rossoneri, and he immediately becomes one of the biggest acquisitions in MLS history.

Kaka scored his club's loan goal in a 1-1 tie with Lazio on Wednesday.

AC Milan definitely needs to have Kaka on top form.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kaka, who has been battling his way back from a thigh injury, will be available for Saturday's Serie A match against Udinese, according to Football-Italia.

Kaka has played only once for Milan since coming back this summer and his availability will be a boost, as Mario Balotelli is set to miss out.

Kaka started Sunday's 2-2 draw with Torino but was subbed off by Valter Birsa in the 70th minute.

Kaka was not expected to play the full 90 minute Saturday, as he didn't play much this season while still at Real Madrid. However, he is expected to increase his pitch time moving forward, likely starting with Wednesday's Champions League group stage match against Celtic, followed by Sunday's Serie A match against Napoli.

Kaka will not be immediately given a full 90 minutes when he opens his second-stint with AC Milan, Sky Sports reports.

Kaka has only two training sessions and a friendly under his belt after rejoining Milan, and he didn't play much with Real Madrid, so his match fitness could be in question. That being said, Milan will ease him back in with the hope that he'll become a solid player for them once again.

The attacking midfielder is returning to Milan as he has agreed to a two-year contract, Football Italia reports.

A nice move for AC Milan. This fills the void from the loss of Kevin Prince-Boateng.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kaká is set to return to transfer from Real Madrid to AC Milan, the Associated Press reports.

Kaká has been a huge disappointment in Spain after he moved from Milan to Madrid in 2009 for €65 million. He injured his knee a few years ago and simply hasn't been the same since. He has fallen out of favor at Madrid and could see a small resurrection if he can get sufficient playing time at Milan. Kaká hasn't made an official appearance for new manager Carlo Ancelotti and it looks like the 2007 FIFA Player of the Year never will.
