PSG deny Kaka interest

Paris Saint-Germain are not interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Kaka, according to the club's director of football Leonardo.

The 29-year-old has endured an injury plagued spell at the Santiago Bernabeu after joining the Spanish giants from AC Milan for £56 million in the summer of 2009.

Kaka has, however, fared far better with injury this season, and has made 19 appearances for Los Blancos in all competitions under Jose Mourinho.

The Brazil international has, though, been frequently linked with a move away from Madrid, with Chelsea and PSG both said to be interested in his signature.

PSG, though, have withdrawn from the race to sign Kaka, with Leonardo rejecting suggestions he will attempt to bring the former Milan star to the Parc des Princes.

"There is nothing," he told L'Equipe when asked about PSG's interest in Kaka.

"I have known Kaka for 11 years, and when he joined Milan he could have been loaned to PSG.

"We have a very good relationship but we have never asked Kaka to come here."

Kaka is not the first player to have been linked with both Chelsea and PSG, with the clubs having vied for Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore during the summer.

The French club ultimately won the race for Pastore, paying a reported £38 million to sign him from Palermo.
