Brazilian ace hopes to be part of first team ahead of World Cup next summer.
Real Madrid midfielder Kaka has revealed he will hold talks with Carlo Ancelotti over his future, as he looks for guarantees of regular first-team action.
The 31-year-old was on the periphery during the latter stages of Jose Mourinho’s tenure, and is predictably worried about his role at the club ahead of next season.
Given that he is desperate to be a part of Luiz Felipe Scolari’s squad ahead of the World Cup in Brazil next summer, he is aware that he must be playing regularly next season, whether that be in Madrid or elsewhere.
Speculation had suggested that the club had agreed a €15m bid from Brazilian club Sao Paulo, but with no official confirmation, it appears as though no deal is in place.
“I have a contract, there is a new Coach and once we begin preseason we will talk for an exchange of ideas,” the 31-year-old told Brazilian media this week.
“There is a year to go until the World Cup and I hope to be there with all my heart,” he told the Brazilian media as quoted by football-italia.net.
Kaka has struggled for both form and fitness over the past two years, but will hope that a reunion with Ancelotti could boost his prospects next year.
The pair enjoyed great success during their time together in Italy, and it is understood that if Kaka is to succeed in Spain, he will need Ancelotti to display the same belief he had in him previously.
Former club AC Milan have been linked with taking him back to San Siro, but a deal could not be agreed back in January.
Nevertheless, given his current predicament and his apparent willingness to sacrifice his high wage deal to play regular football, the Italian giants will be monitoring the situation carefully and will swoop if the financial aspects make sense.
