Could Kaká be exiting the Bernabéu?

I'm going to take this particular transfer rumor with a large pinch of salt. Though if it does go through, I still get to see him on a regular basis - as I've mentioned before Chelsea is my EPL side of choice. Yeah and don't ask me what I'll do come champions league time when los blancos could end up playing the blues.

Anyways, this particular rumor comes from the UK version of People.

KAKA will be offered to Chelsea after Jose Mourinho decided he is ready to dump him from Real Madrid.

The Brazilian, 29, appears to be finished at Real after unimpressive displays during pre-season.

He will meet Mourinho and club president Florentino Perez this week, and People Sport undertsands he will be made available for around £25million.

Since arriving at the Bernabeu from AC Milan, Kaka has struggled for form and with injuries – he fears the Premier League would kill his career if he flops again.

He cost Real a whopping £60m in 2009 and might prefer a return to Italy.

We've discussed it here in the comments: after what looked like a great return to form during the match with the L.A. Galaxy, he seemed flat in the fixtures that followed. I would like to chalk his play up to it being pre-season and perhaps, that he wasn't 90 minutes fit yet. Of course Mou knows better: he sees him every day in training and maybe he's seeing more than we are watching in the matches. Kaká is on the roster for the two friendlies in China before coming back to take on Barca to open the 2011/12 season.

Now from Chelsea's side I see it like this: Why take on Kaká, with the likes of Fernando Torres - who is still getting raked over the coals for being a 'flop' since his transfer from Liverpool. The more I sit here and think about it, I don't think this move is good for either team if I'm being honest with myself.

So what is the better option if indeed we're looking to ditch Kaká? To help us figure that out, I've got a poll for you to weigh in on. Surely we could survive without Kaká, it's not like he's the focal point of the side. That honor belongs to CR7, and his popped collar.
