Manchester City have offered AC Milan 100 million pounds (150 million dollars, 110 million euros) in cash in a bid to land former Ballon d'Or winner Kaka, newspaper reports in London said on Wednesday.

A four-man delegation led by chief executive Garry Cook met top officials at Milan's headquarters on Tuesday, where they offered to make the Brazilian player the highest paid in the world on 15 million pounds a year after tax, the Daily Mail and the Sun tabloids reported.

Silvio Berlusconi, Italy's prime minister and Milan's owner, has resisted previous attempts to lure Kaka away. But the player has said he is unhappy with his role in the AC Milan team and would love to play in the Premier League.
