Kaka's father and agent has denied suggestions the Real Madrid playmaker could join Corinthians or New York Red Bulls in the January transfer window, reports Sky Sports.

As the 30-year-old continues to struggle for regular firs-team football at the Santiago Bernabeu under Jose Mourinho, speculation has mounted that the Brazilian is looking to leave Spain in the New Year.

A return to former club AC Milan had been mooted over the summer, and now Corinthians have been credited with an interest in bring Kaka back to his homeland, while New York Red Bulls are also considering an attempt to lure him to the MLS.

But, Bosco Leite says that talks of a transfer are premature, and that his son's preference would be to remain in Europe.

"I don't know about that," he told Lancenet with regard to the rumours. "For now, as it stands now, he wants to stay in Europe.

"That might change but today, I don't know. Corinthians were never mentioned. And Corinthians themselves never said anything either."

Kaka has started just one game in La Liga this season, but despite his lack of playing time returned to the Brazilian national team last month, following a two-year absence.

The attacking midfielder will need to be playing regular football, though, if he is serious about being in contention for Luiz Felipe Scolari's squad for the 2014 World Cup.
