Kaka looks ever more likely to move to Real Madrid and has called a press conference for Monday in Brazil where he is expected to confirm the world-record transfer.

Reports suggest the Brazil playmaker has been unhappy at the San Siro since Milan showed their willingness to cash in on him in January by accepting a bid from Manchester City.

However, Berlusconi claims he has always wanted Kaka to remain at Milan.

"I've begged him to stay at Milan," he told Milan Channel. "I did it several months ago and Kaka, despite the fact that there was a stratospheric offer of 105 million euros, stayed.

"Now certain clubs again made persistent enquiries, Chelsea and Madrid who will bring, they tell me, a different economic deal for the player."

Berlusconi admits they will not stand in Kaka's way should the 27-year-old decide he wants to move to the Bernabeu.

But the Italian Prime Minister will nevertheless have a last-ditch attempt to persuade Kaka to stay with the Rossoneri.

"(Milan general manager Adriano) Galliani and I arranged to meet last Sunday," he added.

"I asked to meet Kaka, but he had left for Brazil and so I agreed with Galliani to have a long telephone conversation with Kaka this Sunday night or Monday.

"If he presents us with a similar situation to that of Andriy Shevchenko, we will behave in the same way, giving the player and his family the freedom to make the choices they believe are the best."

Berlusconi insists the money Milan receive for Kaka - expected to be around 65 million euros - will be put back into the team.

He said: "If Kaka should leave to go play in another squad, I will invest what Milan receive from the sale to reinforce Milan and create a very competitive squad."

Reports in Italy suggest the Rossoneri are after Arsenal duo Emmanuel Adebayor and Cesc Fabregas.
