Real Madrid playmaker Kaká has revealed his desire to play in the American MLS one day.

The 30-year-old was part of the Seleção side that drew 1-1 with Colombia last night, which took place on US soil at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

The New York Red Bulls, who suffered a disappointing early play-off exit, are rumoured to be the team chasing Kaká and a move could materialise after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

After the international friendly, Kaká admitted that a move to New York, or any other team in the league, is not out of the question.

He told reporters: "Not now, I think. One day, I hope I can play in MLS. I don't think it's now [though].

"[The crowds were] very nice. I would love to play here. It's nice to play in America."

Kaká’s younger brother, Digao, joined the New York Red Bulls this summer, which helped fuel transfer speculation.

The former AC Milan star said that he his friends in the MLS have told him good things and he was impressed by the quality of US football.

"I like it. I have some friends that are playing now here so they say a lot of good stuff about the MLS," Kaka concluded. "One day I hope I can play here."

Kaká has struggled since his transfer to Real Madrid, but his overall career statistics are impressive with around 120 goals and 76 assists in 370 appearances.
