MADRID - Real Madrid midfielder Kaka has announced that he wants to leave the club before the transfer window closes in two days.

The Brazilian who has just started his fifth season with the club, scored twice in Madrid's friendly game away to Deportivo la Coruna on Thursday night and then spoke to the press.

He was momentarily the most expensive player in the world until the club also signed Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer of 2009, but while Ronaldo has been an unqualified success, injuries have stopped Kaka ever approaching the form he showed at AC Milan and the imminent arrival of Gareth Bale will push him further to the fringes of the squad.

"Physically I feel very good, but the club knows that I want to find a solution to my situation," said Kaka.

"Things are difficult for me and there is less and less space," he added. "I am training every day, but that doesn't mean I am happy and I have spoken to my father (who is also his agent) to see if there is something," continued the player.

A return to Milan could be the Brazilian's best option after AC Milan CEO, Adriano Galliani said "Kaka is in our hearts and he could return, it's possible," in response to questions about the player, while Kaka himself ruled out a return to his homeland.

"I can't go back to Brazil because the market is closed. It would have to be Europe. I think the best for me and the club is for us to reach a friendly agreement. It is a good moment to leave, but I don't want to talk about other teams, as I haven't spoken to any," he said.

However, Kaka admitted that he has spoken to his current club about finding a way out.

"The club knows I want to leave and I would like them to help me to find a solution. Everyone in the club knows and I hope we can find a solution between here and Monday," he concluded.

While Kaka looks to be on the way out and probably won't be missed by Madrid fans, there is good news regarding Ronaldo after the newspaper El Mundo Deportivo, traditionally a pro-Barca paper, announced that he had agreed a new contract which will last until June 2018, thus ending worries that he could leave on a cut price deal in 2014 or for nothing in 2015.

The paper reports the deal has not yet been made official and it will probably have to wait until after the international break next week.
