Brazilian playmaker and former world player of the year Kaka has set his sights on a summer departure from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The 31-year-old has failed to nail down a spot in the Real Madrid team since his move from Milan and is now seeking a move elsewhere to resurrect his career.

Kaka has struggled with injuries since his move to the Santiago Bernabeau and has fallen down the pecking order. The 31-year-old is behind the likes of Isco, Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil and Cristiano Ronaldo in the team selection. Gareth Bale is set to complete a world record move to Madrid which would push the Brazilian even further down the pecking order. 

The 31-year-old was quoted on saying: 'I want to leave. I think now is the right moment for me and for the club for me to move amicably.

"I have spoken to Carlo Ancelotti and to the club, they all know. Things are difficult for me now in the team, and the club knows what I want. It's my obligation to work and keep training, but my father is already working to see if anything comes up.'

The 2007 world player of the year has made it clear that he intends to keep playing in Europe but his future lies away from the Bernabeau.

Kaka will still be hoping that he can force his way into Luiz Felipe Scolari's World Cup squad if he is able to play regularly this season. The 31-year-old is hoping that he can finalise a move away from Madrid before the transfer window closes.
