Jose Mourinho doesn't want Kaka to leave Real Madrid amid a flurry of reports linking the Brazilian playmaker with a January move to Chelsea. reports how the 29-year-old has also attracted attention from Paris Saint Germain and Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks, but the Portuguese tactician has ended all speculation that suggested his days at the Santiago Bernabeu were over.

"I am counting on Kaka until June and then again for next season," Mourinho told AS.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas had been credited with an interest in bringing the South American superstar to Stamford Bridge this month, despite the fact that Chelsea's revised transfer policy is supposed to be focused on youth development.

Kaka's proposed move to west London would see him link up with compatriots David Luiz and Ramires in the ranks, whilst defender Alex is set to leave the club before the end of the transfer window.

Chelsea's long-standing interest in Kaka, stems from Blues owner Roman Abramovich, but any hopes he may have had of luring the Brazilian international to England have now been extinguished.

Offers of around €25million had been touted in the English, French and Spanish press, before Mourinho held a meeting with Kaka to reassure him he still has a part to play in Madrid's search for success this year.

"The trophy that drives me the most is the league," he added. "Everyone wants the Champions League, but sometimes teams win that without deserving it.

"They can win because of small details, when things happen that should not or because opponents have key injuries. Many reasons.

"The league is a competition where the team that deserves it wins it and that is why I prefer it."
