Former World Player of the Year wants transfer

Kaka concedes that it's time to leave Real Madrid

By | 30th August 2013

Former World Player of the Year, Kaka, has openly declared that he’s looking to leave La Liga giants Real Madrid. The Brazilian scored twice for Carlo Ancelotti’s side in yesterday’s 4-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna, but after four years at the club the former Sao Paulo player feels it’s time to move on.

Kaka enjoyed the best years of his career during his time at AC Milan, where he played under new Real boss Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian manager arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer after moving on from Ligue 1 champions Paris St. Germain, suggesting that Kaka would have the chance to revive his career. Instead, the 31 year old concedes that the time is right to move on amicably.

“I want to go,” Kaka said, according to The Guardian. ”I think now is the right time for me and for the club to leave amicably. I’ve spoken with [Madrid coach Carlo] Ancelotti and with the club, they all know. My father is talking now with the club to try and resolve this situation.

“Things are now difficult for me in the team and the club know what I want. It’s my obligation to work hard and continue training, but my father is already working to see if something comes up. I think that it’s best for me and for the club.”

Kaka has found playing time to be limited at Real Madrid, with the likes of Sami Khedira, Mesut Ozil, and Luka Modric playing increased roles in the side. The club are also on the verge of unveiling Tottenham winger Gareth Bale in a record breaking move, suggesting it may be the right time for both Kaka and Real Madrid to find a new home for the Brazilian.

Real Madrid take on Athletic Bilbao this Sunday at the Santiago Bernabeu, a day before the transfer window closes.
