Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho believes the club has not seen the best of Kaka and feels a move away could be best for the Brazilian.
The playmaker signed for Real from AC Milan in 2009 and has made 105 appearances, scoring 26 goals.
Mourinho told Rai: “At Real Madrid we never saw the real Kaka.
“He must be happy and Milan could be a good solution, but he is a Real Madrid player.”
Ahead of his 50th birthday, the former Chelsea and Porto coach also talked about his future in coaching and a possible return to an old club.
“Now I am 50, I could still coach for at least more 20 years and many things can happen. Maybe (I could) come back to Inter, why not?”
Mourinho also spoke about the Champions League campaign and focused on Juventus as a particular threat, although his team are set to face Premier League leaders Manchester United in the last 16.
“Juventus are a top team,” he said.
“It’s easy for them to say that they are not the team to beat in the Champions League, (and although) a lot of people say that the favourite teams are Real Madrid, Man United and Barcelona, I say that Borussia Dortmund, Bayern and Juventus can win the Champions League.”
