When Kaka joined Real Madrid in 2009 no one could have imagined what would become of the Brazilian star. Several injuries later and Kaka is still fighting just to be relevant at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Last year, The Guardian quoted former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho as saying “If Kaka decides to stay then perfect. If he goes, that is perfect too but we aren’t going to give him away for free.”
These words made it clear that Kaka was not an important member of the Real Madrid squad and his future at the club began to look bleak.
In January, NESN reported a story from Italian source Gazzetta dello Sport which claimed that Kaka had met with AC Milan executive Adriano Galliani. The report quoted Kaka as saying “It’s not a pleasant situation for me or Real Madrid. I am willing to find a solution that is good for me and for Real.”
At this point it is hard to argue with the fact that Kaka wanted a way out of Real Madrid.
In March the midfielder was quoted by Sky Sports as saying, “I am happy to continue at Real, but I don’t want to be a problem for the club. If I have to go, I will.”
Now that Kaka has been reunited with manager Carlo Ancelotti, things could change. The Brazilian may finally get a chance to show his best and may resurrect his Real Madrid career.
Until that happens, it is hard to imagine that Kaka is excited about possibly extending his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Is there anyone we missed on the list? Who will get their move away? Which players will be forced to stay? Leave your comments below.
