Chelsea have been dealt a blow in their bid to sign Real Madrid forward Kaka, according to Metro.
There has been much speculation over the Brazilian’s future at the Bernabeau, with Chelsea thought to be hoping to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Andre Villas-Boas is wants some new attacking talent at The Blues, but it seems Kaka does not favour a mid-season move.
“A winter departure is almost impossible,” said Kaka’s agent Diogo Katscho.
“Kaka doesn't believe in winter departures. The sums involved are very big and a transfer is something that has to be sorted out calmly, not in a rush.”
The former AC Milan star has struggled to settle since his move from Italy and was said to be frustrated with limited starting opportunities under Jose Mourinho.
Injuries have dogged Kaka for most of his time with Los Merengues and reports coming out of Spain suggested he was ready for a new beginning elsewhere.
It looks as though the Blues will have to be contented with a move in the summer, although they will face competition from big-spenders PSG.
The French team have just appointed Carlo Ancelotti as the new manager, who had a strong relationship with Kaka when both were at AC Milan.
Madrid signed the former Sao Paulo attacker in 2009 for a then world record £56million. The Spaniards do not expect to recoup the full amount but would expect a sizeable chunk of it for any transfer to happen.
