“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.
