AC Milan ace unclear on future

AC Milan star, Kaka, has revealed that he is undecided on whether he will stay on at the club past this season due to their failures this year.

The Brazilian international is contracted at the San Siro until 2015, but due to a clause in his contract, he could terminate his deal this Summer if he wants.

The clause in the contract allows Kaka to terminate his deal if the club failed to reach the Champions League, and due to being 10th in the league after a poor campaign, the Italian giants will not feature in next season's elite competition.

The former-European champions have only managed to pick up 51 points from their 35 games, which leaves them a staggering 42 points behind league-leaders Juventus.

12 defeats and nine draws have cost Milan dearly and that form eventually lead to the club sacking manager Massimiliano Allegri in January, and replacing him with former-player Clarence Seedorf.

However, Milan have improved since the Dutchman has taken over, and in their last six games, they've managed to win five of them and are in good form ahead of the weekend's Milan derby with fierce-rivals Inter.

Speaking in a recent interview, Kaka was asked about his future, but the 32-year-old remained coy on the subject and refused to give anything away after claiming that his decision hasn't been made as of yet.

"My wish is to remain but there are family issues that weigh heavy on my decision and I have to consider them," Kaka said to Italian TV station Mediaset.

"Fans should not worry because I will not play with their feelings.

"I will be the one to decide my future."

The Brazilian international has made over 300-appearances for AC Milan during two different spells, after leaving the club in order to join Spanish giants Real Madrid back in 2009.

However, he then re-joined Milan in 2013 after an unsuccessful spell in Spain, but the playmaker has recently been linked with a move to America to compete in Major League Soccer, along with the likes of Thierry Henry, Robbie Keane and Jermain Defoe.

Kaka has featured in 27 of Milan's game this season, and has contributed with seven goals, and although he is content with his season's form, he knows that he is still capable of achieving more.

"I am happy with my campaign," Kaka said. "Of course I have to improve and do better."

Despite not being sure whether his future is at Milan, he has revealed the club's goals for next season under manager Clarence Seedorf.

"The aim for Milan next season is to challenge for the league title and to return to play in the Champions League for the 2015-16 campaign," said Kaka, who also believes Seedorf is the right man to guide Milan next season.

The former Real Madrid man was then questioned about Seedorf as a manager, and the Brazilian was full of praise for his former team-mate and believes he will learn the trade very quickly.

"Seedorf has to get used to being a coach and gain experience," Kaka said. "He is an intelligent person and he is a fast learner.

"I am happy to work with him and I'm sure that given time, he can do very well."

AC Milan and Kaka will now be focusing on ending their season on a high, and will look to deal with the contract saga in the Summer before the World Cup.
