Real Madrid midfielder Kaka has revealed that he wants to leave the Santiago Bernabeu before the transfer window slams shut.
The Brazil international moved to Madrid from AC Milan in a bumper GVBP 56 million move back in 2009 but struggled to regain his best form at the club.
The 31-year-old has regularly been linked with a move away from the club due to the lack of game time, but the player had previously opted to stay and fight for his place.
With Madrid having beefed up their midfield considerably already this summer, Kaka feels that the time has come for him to move on, and the former Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year winner is working on finding a new club.
"I want to go," he declared, according to AS.
"I think now is the right time for me and for the club to leave amicably. I've spoken with (Madrid coach Carlo) Ancelotti and with the club, they all know.
"My father is talking now with the club to try and resolve this situation.
"Things are now difficult for me in the team and the club know what I want. It's my obligation to work hard and continue training, but my father is already working to see if something comes up. I think that it's best for me and for the club."
