The front pages of the two sports papers in Madrid – Marca and AS – are dominated by Real Madrid’s Brazilian playmaker Kaka, who says he wants to leave the club before the end of the transfer window.
The 31-year-old, signed from AC Milan in 2009, told reporters he needs regular first team football and that in order to do so he must make a switch away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
He has ruled out a move to Brazil for now, saying Europe is the best option for him – prompting speculation he may return to his former club.
Elsewhere, there is news that Los Blancos have tied up a deal for Guilherme Siqueira should Fabio Coentrao leave the club before the window closes.
FInally, there is plenty of coverage about the Champions League draw, in which Madrid were drawn with Juventus, Galatasaray and Copenhagen in Group B. The general feeling is that the draw has been kind to Madrid and that Los Blancos should qualify without too many problems.
