KAKA WANTS MADRID STAY
January 13, 2012
Real Madrid’s Brazilian playmaker Kaka has said that he will not be looking for a move away from the Spanish club in the January transfer window. Immediately after the opening of this transfer window, speculation has been rife that Kaka will be moving away from Spain.
Kaka cost around £ 64 million for Real Madrid, but he has been largely disappointing. The injuries suffered to his knee and pelvis has certainly taken the explosive acceleration out of his game. Kaka has largely reliant upon these skills for getting away from defenders and scoring the goals, which led to him becoming the world player of the year in 2007.
It is thought that Real Madrid are willing to accept around £ 30 million for the playmaker in their efforts to reduce the wage bill at the club. Kaka is believed to earn around € 10 million per year and getting him of the wage bill will have proved to be very significant for the new signings in this transfer window. Kaka has been linked with a move to France where his mentor Carlo Ancelotti has taken over at PSG. However, Kaka has said that he is someone who does not believe in the idea of winter transfers and that he is not looking for a transfer away from Real Madrid.
“Kaka is also satisfied at Real. He feels much better, is back in the Brazil team and doesn’t want to leave. A winter departure is almost impossible. He doesn’t believe in winter departures. The sums involved are very big and a transfer is something that has to be sorted out calmly, not in a rush,” Kaka’s spokesman Diogo told L’Equipe. Kaka has recently returned from the long-term injury, which has kept him out of the side until now.
