The Kaka transfer story took another turn after Caroline Celico (Kaka's wife) announced that the family will return to Brazil. She commented about Kaka in an interview with RG (magazine from Brazil) in a h/t to ESPN Soccernet.

The Spanish magazine AS in a h/t to ESPN Soccernet reported (as well) on the possibility of Kaka returning to Brazil. It is not surprising that Ms. Celico and AS made this comment in light of what is happening to her husband.

The recent signing of Luka Modric to Real Madrid does not help Kaka's standing with the club. The news from AC Milan concerning the possible return of Kaka is also bad news for him as well.

According to an interview with Milan Channel (and an article from Gazzetta dello Sport with a h/t to Goal) AC Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani used reason of taxes to avoid signing Kaka.

Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid's manager) is noncommittal about Kaka according to AS in a h/t to FIFA. Mourinho said that Kaka could stay or go, yet the interested club must pay Real Madrid to sign Kaka.

The logical conclusion for this summer transfer drama would be for Kaka and his family to return to Brazil. The return of Kaka to Brazil would be of benefit to him and Real Madrid.



Change of Scenery for Kaka

If Kaka returns to Brazil, he may return to his first club which is Sao Paulo. The move could offer Kaka and their family a change of scenery from the drama that involved them, Real Madrid and AC Milan.

Kaka may find the appreciation in his home country and club that was gradually lost during the Real Madrid years. The return to Brazil would give Kaka a sense of permanence in Sao Paulo and Brazil.

Kaka moving back to Brazil could help him should he want to play for his country in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He could represent his home country off the field during the 2014 FIFA World Cup and/or the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro.

The move does not have to mean playing football since Kaka can retire and enjoy time with his family. He could also make appearances on television like other sports personalities such as Pele.


Benefits For Real Madrid

Real Madrid has players such as Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, and Mesut Ozil in its ranks. Kaka has not played for Los Merengues in the current season and was recently left out of the Supercup between Los Merengues and FC Barcelona.

Kaka attempted to find a place in Real Madrid since he joined the club. The effort has not been successful according to AP with a h-t to Yahoo.

The best thing for both parties is to negotiate with Sao Paulo with Kaka returning to his club. Whether this will occur remains to seen.
