Kaka, Robinho could leave AC Milan
AC Milan could be prepared to let both Kaka and Robinho leave this summer because the salary savings generated by their departures would free up around 18 million euros for new coach Filippo Inzaghi's budget.

Kaka, who earns an estimated eight million euros a year, still has a year left to run on his contract, while Robinho has two years remaining on a deal worth around five million euros per annum.
By the end of this month, Kaka, 32, must decide whether or not he wants to activate a release clause in his contract after Milan's failure to qualify for Europe next season.
Former Real Madrid man Kaka is attracting the attention of his former club Sao Paulo -- an option that is believed to appeal to him.
Robinho struggled to make any headway in the Milan team last season under either Massimiliano Allegri or Clarence Seedorf, and the arrival of Jeremy Menez from Paris Saint-Germain has cast further doubt over the 30-year-old's future.
The ex-Manchester City forward could therefore be sold at a knockdown price, with the savings in wages invested in a player such as Hellas Verona forward Juan Iturbe.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Iturbe is also attracting the attention of Real Madrid and Barcelona, as well as Milan's Serie A rivals Juventus.
