It's not technically official yet, but Brazilian superstar midfielder Kaka has arrived in Orlando, Florida, to put pen to paper on a contract with Orlando City SC, who will begin play in Major League Soccer in 2015.
Orlando City President Phil Rawlins tweeted a picture on Monday evening of the former AC Milan player, who terminated his contract with the Italian club recently, with OCSC co-owner Flavio Augusto da Silva after touching down in Orlando:
