Kaka has not impressed Real Madrid fans. Now that it is known that he will have to face a hernia injury until the end of his days, rumours have been floating around Italy and Spain concerning the player's future.

The Brazilian ace, whose contract only runs out in 2015, said some days ago that he felt under pressure.

Which makes you want to ask him: "Real Madrid just invested €65 mil. in you and is paying you a huge salary—hasn't it ever come across you that pressure might be a problem?"

In Italy the talk is around a possible trade that would involve both Diego and Giorgio Chiellini; in other words, Kaka could go to the "Vecchia Signora."

The Spanish press is not sparing Kaka any harsh criticism. Although he has had some great exhibitions in the early stages of the season, it seems as though the midfielder lowered his quality gradually, game after game.

Has the Kaka from AC Milan disappeared? Only time will say, but if he keeps underachieving, then we might as well declare Kaka's career dead.
