Kaká stunned Real Madrid on Tuesday when he announced after scoring two goals against Deportivo that he wants to leave Real Madrid before the transfer window closes on Monday.
“I want to leave. I think now is the right time for me and the club to part company amicably. I have spoken to Carlo Ancelotti and the club, everyone knows. My father is having talks with the club to find a solution,” the Brazilian said.
“Things are difficult for me in the team and the club knows what I want. It is my duty to work and keep on training, but my father is currently trying to see what might come up. Once again, I think this is the best thing for both myself and the club.”
The shocking part of Kaka’s request is the timing. The transfer window closes in a couple of days, which doesn’t leave much time to land up a suitor for him. Unless Kaka already has a destination in place?
Kaka has been rumoured to have been leaving the Bernabéu for two years now, but the stumbling block has always been his wages, at €10m net per year. Kaka has previously been unwilling to take a pay cut to move somewhere else, and frankly he is not worth €10m net a year anymore.
