David Beckham has urged his new teammate to snub Man City and remain at AC Milan.
There was an air of mourning mixed with chants of anger at the San Siro on Saturday night as AC Milan claimed victory over Fiorentina thanks to Alexandre Pato's lone goal.
The result was secondary, even though it keeps AC Milan alive in the Scudetto race, as David Beckham made his first appearance for Milan since arriving on-loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy in winter transfer window.
But for fans and millions around the world he wasn't the centre of attention, as the focus was purely on Kaka as this game might turn out to be his last as a Milan player.
The Brazilian superstar and former Fifa World Player Of The Year now seems all but certain to join Manchester City as their huge bid of €120 million is set to be accepted by the Italian giants.
However, Beckham thinks that his teammate snubs the mouth-watering offer from Manchester City.
"I don't think it was Kaka's last game," the 33-year-old midfielder said in The Daily Mail.
"I think there's always going to be speculation around him, there's always going to be speculation around big players at big clubs and they don't come much bigger than Kaka. But he's very happy at Milan.
"Without doubt he should stay. AC Milan is one of the biggest clubs in the world. It's not always about money. There is not one player in that dressing room that cares about money before football. I hope he stays."
