|Wanting out: Kaka wants to leave Real Madrid|
Brazilian star Kaka has revealed that he wants to leave Real Madrid.
Kaka joined Madrid from AC Milan in a world-record £56million deal in the summer of 2009 but has failed to live up to expectations at the Bernabeu, scoring only twenty-nine goals in four seasons at the club.
The 31-year-old has made 120 appearances for the Spanish side - at a cost of £466,666 per game - and was often overlooked by Jose Mourinho last season, with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Luka Modric being preferred.
Further competition has been added to the Madrid squad this summer, with Isco joining from Malaga and Gareth Bale's £86million move to the Spanish capital looking imminent.
And Kaka admits it may be time to move on, telling AS: 'I am feeling very good physically but the club know that I would like to find a solution to my situation. Things are difficult for me here, there is increasingly less room for me. I am ready every day to train and work but this is not to say that I am happy.'
'The club know that I would like to go and that I would like them to help me find a way out. [Carlo] Ancelotti knows, Florentino [Perez] knows, everyone at the club knows and I hope that between now and Monday a solution is found.'
Kaka, who won the Ballon d'Or in 2007, has also fallen out of favour with the Brazil national team and was not picked for the Confederations Cup this summer.
At this stage, it would appear unlikely that he will make Phil Scolari's World Cup squad next summer.
Kaka came close to joining Manchester City in 2009, while he has been linked with loan moves to Arsenal and Manchester United in recent times - and Kaka admits that any move would have to be to a European side, with the player understood to be keen on a return to Milan.
He added: 'I cannot go to Brazil because the transfer market is closed there, the destination would have to be in Europe.
'I believe it is in the best interests of myself and the club that I leave in an amicable way, it is the right time to go. I don't want to talk about others clubs because I have none at this stage.'
