Mundo Deportivo reports that Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has instructed the club that he intends to get rid of Kaka, Fernando Gago, Hamit Altintop and Ricardo Carvalho in the off-season.
The Brazilian signed for Madrid from AC Milan in June 2009 on a six-year deal but he has so far struggled to recapture the form he had with the Italians which once saw him regarded by many pundits as the best player in the world.
This season Kaka played more of a super-sub role in Mourinho's La Liga winning team and the emergence of Mesut Ozil as Madrid's chief playmaker is likely to see him play more games from the bench in the next campaign.
The player himself recently admitted that he intends to see out the remainder of his contract at the club but the Spanish newspaper insists he may not have too much of a say in this.
Chelsea are just one of several European clubs consistently being linked to Kaka in the past.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Gago and Altintop will follow Kaka through the Bernabeu exit if Mourinho gets his way in the summer.
Gago is not part of Mourinho's plans and the midfielder spent the season on loan at Roma. He was expected to seal a permanent move to the Serie A outfit last month but the Italians refused to meet the €7million asking price set by Madrid by the June 1 deadline. Gago has one year left on his contract and may now be forced to run out his contract next season if no other interested buyers come in.
Another midfielder on his way out of the club, says the report, is Turkey international Altintop. The former Bayern Munich player joined Madrid in the summer of 2011 on a free transfer. Injuries have largely restricted Altintop to just a handful of games for Madrid since his arrival.
Meanwhile, the newspaper added that Madrid's 34-year-old centre-back Carvalho will also be sold.
