Real Madrid's Kaka Doesn't Believe In Winter Transfers

Kaka doesn't believe in winter transfers. What's next, is he going to tell me that he doesn't believe in the Easter Bunny?

The Kaka conundrum continues on, with his agent Diogo Katscho telling the press that Kaka isn't going anywhere during the winter transfer window and is enjoying his time at the Bernabeu.

"He doesn't believe in winter departures," Diogo Katscho told L'Equipe. "The sums involved are very big and a transfer is something that has to be sorted out calmly, not in a rush."

"Kaka is also satisfied at Real. He feels much better, is back in the Brazil team and doesn't want to leave. "A winter departure is almost impossible."

I'm wondering if his agent saw the Copa del Rey match today . Well if he did, he didn't see Kaka, that's for sure. In his 45 minutes on the pitch he might as well have been in the locker room -- that's how invisible he was. I don't think his time in a Real Madrid strip is going to get any better.

This is twice now that Jose Mourinho has given him the hook at the half way mark. For a guy that's supposed to be a CAM, he sure isn't showing it.

One of our readers put it best in the game recap post. Thank you, James. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Hell, when he was on [on the pitch] he made Lass look like a creative midfielder.

He's not getting any younger--he's 29 and about to turn the clock over to 30, and after that age, footballers don't get any better and actually start to decline. Now, with Sami Khedira out with an injury Nuri Şahin's absence, we're going to see more of him.

I'm hoping this means that Mesut Özil gets the playing time he needs to turn things around. Somehow, they'll need to use a better rotation. It actually made me cringe to hear Mourinho say he wasn't going to use any sort of rotation. We're competing on multiple fronts, and most likely we're in line for another clasico if/when FC Barcelona dispatch their Copa del Rey opponent tomorrow.

So unless something weird happens, apparently we're stuck with him.
