Milan vice president Adriano Galliani is getting it from both sides this week. His club's supporters are looking for reassurances that Kaka isn't on his way to Real Madrid. Though Galliani is making public statements claiming that the Brazilian is staying, Rossoneri fans are not ready to believe him after last summer's pronouncements.
On the other side of the coin, Uncle Fester is trying to do the bidding of his coach, Carlo Ancelotti. The gaffer is looking to add a little youth to the side and has singled out the next big name in Brazilian soccer, Alexandre Pato. Currently staring for the Brazilians at the U-20 World Cup in Canada, Pato is also reportedly on the shopping list at Stamford Bridge, the Bernabeu, and across the street at Inter.
Brazil plays the U.S. tomorrow in Ottawa, with a knockout round berth at stake, at 7:30p ET, live on ESPNU and Galavision.
