The great race for Kaká has started.

On Thursday the Brazilian midfielder claimed he is on the way out of Real Madrid despite scoring twice in a friendly with Deportivo La Coruna.

“I have less and less of a place on the team” says Kaká. “The club knows that I would like to leave and I want it to help me find a solution for my exit.”

And while a move to Major League Soccer has long been rumored for the former World Player of the Year the Madrid playmaker believes staying in Europe is his only option and also ruled out a switch to any Brazilian sides.

“I cannot go to Brazil because the market is closed the exit would be within Europe” Kaká said. “I don’t want to talk about clubs because I have none at this stage.”

But why has Kaká all of a sudden decided to change his tune after largely being a squad player over the past three seasons at Madrid? His quality is undoubted but under José Mourinho Kaká’s talents just didn’t fit into the managers philosophy. The 31-year-old Brazilian superstar may have thought things would change under new Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti Kaká’s manager at AC Milan during the best years of his career but he still finds himself on the fringes of Real’s starting lineup.
