Barcelona star Dani Alves has told countryman Kaka that he should have left Real Madrid by now.
Kaka is well down the pecking order at the Bernabeu and has not played for Los Blancos since a friendly against Celtic on 11th August, during Real Madrid’s pre-season North American tour.
Los Blancos manager Jose Mourinho told Kaka that he was free to leave the Spanish champions, but the club’s insistence on a large fee for the 30-year-old put off potential suitors and the Brazilian midfielder later claimed to have had no offers.
Alves, who has viewed the situation from the Camp Nou, feels sorry for Kaka and the situation he finds himself in and believes that he should do everything he can to leave.
"If I had been Kaka, after all this time I would leave Real Madrid, because I like to play football", said the rampaging full-back.
"I feel sad for him, because I admire him as a player and I would not like to go through what he is going through now."
Kaka was on the bench for Real Madrid’s 1-0 defeat at Sevilla in La Liga over the weekend, but was overlooked in favour of Mesut Ozil and Luka Modric.
The Brazilian playmaker is expected to be even more ready to leave Real Madrid by the time the January transfer window opens. He is believed to be on the wanted list of former club AC Milan and Turkish champions Galatasaray.
