Kaka is willing to rebuild his relationship with Real Madrid.

The market shut with Kaka still a Real player, despite flirting with AC Milan and PSG.

"I do not want to burden the club," said Kaka. "The problem was I had no serious offers. I am not demanding to be a starter, only to be allowed to return to the squad.

"I want to start again from scratch."

Asked about his relationship with coach Jose Mourinho, Kaka continued: "It is a professional relationship. There is mutual respect. I never questioned him."

And he concluded: "Would it not be better to go and play elsewhere or even in another league which is less competitive? My answer is yes. But for now, I still want to do this."
