The Brazilian had fallen down the pecking order under former manager Jose Mourinho although it is expected that he will be given more chances under Ancelotti in the coming year.
Kaka's profile had risen under Ancelotti when playing under the Italian's supervision at AC Milan as he won the Ballon d'or in 2007 after leading the Serie A side to Champions League success.
In Madrid, the player has become a shadow of his former self, though, and he was even omitted from the national squad by Scolari for their recently-concluded Confederations Cup campaign.
The 31-year-old is still confident of a renaissance, however, and hopes to play more often at the Santiago Bernabeu in the coming season. He remains hopeful of winning Scolari's favour ahead of next year's World Cup on home soil.
"My challenge for this season is to play more regularly," Kaka told Adidas. "I want to be physically fit and then if I do well for my club I can get back in the national team."
"I want to play in the World Cup next summer. Carlo [Ancelotti] is an open coach who is helping me a lot. Personally, it's great to train with him."
Kaka broke the world record transfer fee when signing for Los Merengues in 2009 but has become a backup player and was only granted 19 domestic appearances for the club in the previous season.
