AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has opened the door to a return for Rossoneri icon Kaka from Real Madrid.

Kaka's days at Madrid appear to be numbered, and the Brazil star was left behind for Tuesday's friendly win against Real Oviedo.

Galliani has reportedly held informal talks with Kaka's agent and, when asked about a possible return, says ''certain loves never die, they just go round on a long journey and come back again.''

Kaka is still idolized by Milan fans after a golden six-year spell during which he helped it to the Serie A title and the Champions League, becoming a global superstar.

He moved to Madrid in 2009 for ?65 million (then $92 million), making him the second most expensive football signing ever after Cristiano Ronaldo.
