Kaka has explained that the reason he did not leave Real Madrid this summer was because he had no offers.
The Brazilian star has been informed that he will not be a regular starter under Jose Mourinho at Los Blancos this season and insists that he was ready to head for pastures new.
AC Milan wanted to take their former player back, but Real Madrid demanded a fee for the 30-year-old, which ruled out the Rossoneri, while Paris Saint-Germain were also linked with a bid, but in the end chose not to pursue the midfielder.
And that meant when the transfer window slammed shut, Kaka was left at the Bernabeu.
"I do not want to be a burden on the club and if I am not gone it is because I did not have any offers", Kaka told Globoesporte.
"I will not be a starter, but I will be back in the squad list", he added, looking to the future at Real Madrid.
"I am 30 years old and I’ve done a lot. Sometimes I wonder ‘is it better to go somewhere else where I could play more?’ The answer is yes and I am willing to."
Kaka also stressed that there is no problem between him and Mourinho, with a respectful relationship existing between the two.
"It is a professional relationship of mutual respect. The coaching staff have confidence in some players more than others. But I am going to try to regain that confidence.
"I arrive early. I train before I do the work in two periods and I am convinced that the more than the others I train then I will get my place back in the team."
