Real Madrid star Kaka has confirmed his desire to stay with the La Liga side despite his continued failure to settle in at the Bernabeu.
The Brazilian international has shown glimmers of his talent since his £50 million move from AC Milan in the summer of 2009.
Kaka was a peripheral figure for Madrid last season, making only 11 domestic appearances, scoring seven goals, but he's unwilling to give up.
"I want to stay here, absolutely. I am not going anywhere because I want to succeed at Madrid," Kaka told AS.
"It is simply not true that [head coach Jose] Mourinho has no faith in me."
Both Chelsea and Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move for the 29-year-old, who won the Ballon d'Or in 2007.
City came close to signing Kaka in January 2009, but rejected the move saying his playing style would hinder his ability to star in the Premier League.
However, just six months later Kaka completed his move to Madrid, breaking the world transfer record, just weeks prior to the singing of Cristano Ronaldo, who joined from Manchester United for an £80 million fee, leapfrogging the Brazil player.
His opportunities have increased this season, having made 12 starts already this term as Jose Mourinho's side close in on the league title.
