Kaka open to Real Madrid exit

Real Madrid midfielder Kaka has admitted he could be open to leaving the club, with a January window move to LA Galaxy not out of the question.

Speaking to journalists after scoring on a rare first team start in Madrid’s 4-1 Champions League Group D win over Ajax on Tuesday, Kaka suggested that he wanted to sit down with the club and sort out his future.

Reports in Spain suggest Madrid president Florentino Perez would like to remove the player’s €10m annual salary from the wage bill to help fund a new improved contract for Cristiano Ronaldo, while David Beckham’s exit means the newly-crowned MLS Cup winners are seeking a new marquee player.

The Brazilian, 30, said he would like to be playing more at Madrid and could not say what his future held. “I do not know what will happen,” Kaka said. “I have a contract until 2015. A player always likes to play, but I respect the decisions of the boss.”

When asked directly about a potential move to LA, Kaka left the issue hanging. “I have nothing at the moment,” he said. “I keep doing my work to remain at Madrid. Then, we can see what happens and what the club wants. It is not a comfortable situation for the club or me... I will go if I have an agreement with the club.”

Kaka was heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu last summer, but Madrid were reportedly unable to find a buyer. The player suggested this could now change in January, with negotiations on-going.

“(Jose Mourinho) has not said anything to me,” he said. “The club called me but we did not reach a solution. I would like to know what they want. If they make a decision, I am open to talking.”

The former AC Milan man’s 49th minute strike - a 25 yard curler with his left foot - took him to 28 goals in the Champions League, moving past former international team-mate Rivaldo to become Brazil’s highest ever scorer in Europe’s top club competition.

Kaka said he was delighted to have been captain for the evening, but less happy to be substituted by Mourinho with 20 minutes left.

“I was captain and I scored,” he said. “The armband gave me luck. I did not know I was the Brazilian with most goals in the Champions League. I was surprised by the change, but I go along with the decisions of the boss.”

Kaka said his recent goalscoring return to the Brazilian national team after four years in the international wilderness had been a positive for him, and he hoped to remain in the side and play World Cup 2014 on his home soil.

“The national team has helped me,” he said. “It would be an achievement if I could play a World Cup in my country.”
