The popular Spanish website, sport.es, has suggested that Kaka's time at Real Madrid could well be up.

The extremely holy Brazilian has been living a weird Gollum-like existence beneath the looming shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo since their megabucks moves last summer, and an uninspiring World Cup will have done little to suggest any sudden upsurge in the near future.

The website also reports that the new Real Madrid manager (someone called Jose Mourinho?) has been particularly impressed by Rafael van der Vaart — a man who could yet morph into "the new Wesley Sneijder" — so much so that he rang him up to tell him so.

All of which surely points to an increasingly frustrated Kaka awkwardly burning holes in pockets from the bench, seriously considering an "I belong to Chelsea" T-shirt.

Chelsea — that was your cue.
