Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, commonly known as Kaka, is a well-known Brazilian football attacking midfielder who is currently playing for Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid and the Brazilian national team. He is famous for his calmness, amazing dribbling techniques and abilities to pose great threats to the opponent.

Kaká won the Ballon d'Or in 2007, World Soccer Player of the Year in 2007, FIFA World Player of the Year in 2007, the FIFA Confederations Cup Golden Ball in 2009, as well as the FIFA World Cup Top Assister in 2010. In Jun. 2009, Kaka left Milan to join Real Madrid for a total transfer fee of €65 million. However, the footballer didn't perform to his best there due to his knee injuries which pulled him down.

On Apr. 4, 2012, Kaka marked his return from injuries by scoring the second goal in Real Madrid's 5-2 victory over Apoel Nicosia, helping the club move into the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League. Kaka's major sponsors included Adidas, Giorgio Armani and Guarana.
