Things look bleak for former Brazilian ace Kaka

After announcing that he wants to leave, El Loco looks at what could be a sad end for a much-frustrated Kaka at Real Madrid


Any club interested in securing Kaka's services?

The Brazilian attacking midfielder has announced that he wants to get out of Real Madrid before the transfer window closes on Monday.

This is easy to read as Kaka is frustrated that he has been struggling all the way since joining the Bernabeu outfit from Italian giants AC Milan in 2009 for a fee of £56m - a world record then.

The 31-year-old just failed to command a regular spot despite the changes of managers. In short, sadly, he's a flop.

This is considering the superstar status he enjoyed while at Milan with impressive performances to attract Real to fork out that kind of money to get him.

It is difficult to really point out why a talent like Kaka failed to make an impact with the talent he has. But one of the reasons, obviously, must be that he is not good enough to compete for places in a team like Real. 

"I want to leave. I think now is the right time for me and the club to part company amicably. I have spoken to manager Carlo Ancelotti and the club, everyone knows," said Kaka.

"My father is having talks with the club to find a solution.

"Things are difficult for me in the team and the club know what I want. It is my duty to work and keep on training, but my father is trying to see what might come up.

"Once again, I think this is the best thing for both myself and the club," he revealed.

Kaka started his career with Brazilian club Sao Paulo in 2001 where he scored 23 goals from 59 matches. Pretty good for a midfielder.

He joined Milan in 2003 and played 193 matches for them. The number of goals he netted? An incredible 70.

Kaka was part of the team who won the Serie A title in the 2003-04 season. A memorable debut season for him.

At Real, he played some parts in their success of winning the Primera Liga title in 2011-2012 season.

Kaka then made his debut with Brazil in 2002 and what a sweet one for him as they won the World Cup that year.

He has 87 caps with 29 goals, which is quite remarkable.

The big question now is where will Kaka ply his trade after this? He is not expected to quit because of his passion for the game. And he is still capable of playing.

Asia, perhaps? It's anyone guess.

Well, in other interesting developments, Barcelona are monitoring Fernando Torres' situation at Chelsea.

With Samuel Eto'o joining Chelsea from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala, the Catalans are keeping tabs on developments in the event Torres is made available.

Sport reports that the former Atletico Madrid captain is on Barca's radar and the chance to bring him back to Spain for an affordable fee won't be ignored should Chelsea show a willingness to sell.

Manager Gerardo 'Tata' Martino does have concerns about his squad's lack of an out-and-out striker option and would welcome Torres if Barca were to swoop.

It is a good idea.

Torres may just regain his scoring touches if he has the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar, Pedro and Alexis Sanchez to support him. Who knows?
