What does the future hold for Kaka?

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has fuelled reports that playmaker Kaka could be leaving the Spanish giants in the summer.

The most popular athlete on Twitter has struggled with injuries and form since joining from Serie A side AC Milan in 2009 for a fee of around 65 million euros.

The 2007 Champions League winner has shown that he is not far from his best with signs of genius when called upon.

However his season did not end so positively, missing one of the crucial penalties against Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals which eventually sent the Spanish side crashing out of the competition.

Asked about Kaka in a recent press conference, Mourinho said: “He has played some very good matches, others less good and others in which neither he nor I have come away satisfied.

"If one thinks that it is better not to stay and he is more interested in another project we will look at it. They also make their decisions and we will listen to those that have something else in their heads."

Linked with Chelsea and PSG

The 30-year-old Brazilian has been linked with the likes of Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain as uncertainty continues to grow surrounding his future.

A move to PSG could see Kaka link up with former Milan boss Carlo Ancellotti, president Leonardo took him to the San Siro back in 2003.

Although Kaka has committed his future to Real Madrid in the past, he may be tempted by a move to PSG or Chelsea if it is made clear he is not wanted.

A return to Milan could also be on the cards as the Italian side have always made it clear that he is welcome to return the club; although this is unlikely given his high wages.

His position has always been tenuous over the past couple of seasons, especially with the rise of Mesut Ozil.

Kaka has always emphasised that he must win with Real; with this now a reality he maybe more accommodating if Real deem him surplus to requirements.

Nevertheless, Kaka’s future is an uncertain one.
