Kaka: I want to leave Real Madrid

The Brazilian midfielder has told coach Carlo Ancelotti that he wishes to depart the Santiago Bernabeu this summer
Brazilian star Kaka has revealed he is keen to leave Real Madrid with less than a week remaining before this summer's transfer window closes.

The 31-year-old had struggled to establish himself under former Blancos coach Jose Mourinho, and does not seem to be part of Carlo Ancelotti's plans either, having spent Real's first two Liga outings of this season on the bench.

Furthermore, the imminent arrival of Gareth Bale from Tottenham in a record-breaking deal worth €100 million, is set to push the Brazilian even further down the pecking order in the Spanish capital.

"I want to leave," Kaka told reporters.

"I think now is the right moment for me and for the club for me to leave amicably. I have spoken to Carlo Ancelotti and with the club, they all know.

"Things are difficult for me now in the team, and the club knows what I want. It’s my obligation to work and keep training, but my father is already working to see if something comes up.

"I think it’s the best thing for me and the club.

"We can only hope for a solution before this next Monday. My intention is to keep playing in Europe."

Kaka has made 85 appearances for Madrid since his arrival from AC Milan in 2009.
