Brazil international is ready for a new chapter in his career

Paris Saint Germain director of football Leonardo has denied they are interested in signing Kaka from Real Madrid. The 29-year-old attacker has been dogged by injuries since he joined Real in 2009 and has not quite been able to replicate the form he showed at AC Milan. Leonardo played with the Brazil international during his time at the San Siro but the PSG deal-maker has dismissed claims they have tried to buy him. "There is nothing," he told L'Equipe about the speculation linking PSG with a move for Kaka.

Relationship

"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." However, while any potential deal for Kaka appears to be a non-starter, Thiago Motta is keen on a switch. The Inter Milan midfielder is scheduled to face Napoli in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia and he has been strongly linked with a move to France throughout January. His contract with Inter expires in June 2013 and so far the two parties have yet to agree an extension.
Availability
And his agent, Dario Canovi, did little to quell the speculation as he stated the cup game could be 29-year-old's last for Inter. "Tonight's game could be Thiago's last in Inter colours," Canovi told Radio CRC. "The player has indicated his availability to PSG for the transfer. "We have not spoken yet about the financial terms with the French club, because an agreement between the two clubs is missing. "Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and PSG are a club who are trying to build one of the strongest teams in the world."
