Kaka admits uncertainty over Real Madrid future
Wednesday 05 December 2012
Real Madrid forward Kaka is unsure if he will still be at the Bernabeu past January after struggling to force his way into the first team.
The Brazilian playmaker, who cost Los Blancos £56million when he joined from AC Milan in 2009, has suffered from a long-standing knee injury as well as a lack of form.
Kaka has made just one league start this campaign - against Celta Vigo in October - and even then he was replaced at half-time.
Last night the 30-year-old made a rare start and was named as captain as Real, who were already assured of a spot in the knockout stages, beat Ajax 4-1.
Kaka scored the third, but his future at the club is unclear with LA Galaxy said to be interested.
Former Galaxy and Real midfielder David Beckham, who played with Kaka at AC Milan, talked up a move for the Brazilian, saying: "We'd welcome any player of his skill and calibre at Galaxy."
However, Kaka, who still has three years left to run on his deal with Real, claims there has been no contact although admits he could soon leave last season's Primera Division champions.
"No, now I have (heard) nothing (from LA Galaxy)," he told Spanish newspaper AS.
"I keep doing my job to stay in Madrid. Then, to see what happens and what the club wants. It's not a comfortable situation for either the club or me.
"I do not know what will happen. I have a contract until 2015.
"The club called me (in the summer) and we did not find a solution. What January? I do not know, I hope to know what the club wants. If they choose a solution, I'm open to talk."
