Milan:

Kaka will not be leaving AC Milan for Real Madrid, according to Milan vice president Adriano Galliani.

"Kaka is staying in Milan with absolute certainty," Galliani said Tuesday. "He has a contract and it seems to me that he is happy to be at Milan."

Madrid president Ramon Calderon reportedly said the 25-year-old Brazil playmaker wanted to move to the Spanish capital next season.

"I want to guarantee to Real Madrid chief Ramon Calderon that Kaka will be in Milanello on July 23 as per schedule, to start preseason training with his teammates," Galliani said. "I also want him to know that on Aug. 31 he will play the European Super Cup Final in Monaco against Sevilla as a European champion and he will take part in the World Club Championship in Japan in December as well."

Kaka set up Filippo Inzaghi's second goal as Milan beat Liverpool 2-1 in the Champions League final in May. Kaka also scored a tournament-high 10 goals during the competition.

Calderon pledged to sign the midfielder as part of his campaign for the presidency last year, but Milan repeatedly said it had no intention of releasing him.

Kaka joined the Rossoneri in 2003 and is contracted until 2011.
