Chelsea target Kaka insists that Jose Mourinho wants him to stay at Real Madrid, despite strong rumours liking the superstar to the Stamfrod Bridge club.
"It has been said Mourinho does not want me in Madrid but that is not true. He has always been very honest with me and consistent in his decisions about me and the team in general,” Kaka said.
"My desire is to remain at Real Madrid.
"I knew there would be speculation because since arriving in Madrid I have been linked with 10 teams. But Mourinho wants me to continue and I will follow."
Chelsea has long been linked with a move for Kaka, after the Brazilian struggled to find his feet last season with the Spanish giants.
Chelsea were thought to be the favoured destination for Kaka in the transfer period, mostly because Chelsea were one of the few clubs that could afford the £50 million fee the Daily Mail reported was over the star's head.
But Kaka insists that Spain is his home for next season, and the 29-year-old admitted that the injury he suffered last season was a very difficult time to get through.
"On a personal level, it was the most difficult season of my career,” Kaka said.
"For the team it was OK, we won the Copa del Ray against Barcelona, reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and came second in the league.
"But that is not enough for a club such as Madrid.
"For me personally it was very difficult. I had the injury, returned in January, but in March stopped again. I managed to play the last two months but it was hard."
