Coach Jose Mourinho says Real Madrid does not plan to sell little-used midfielder Kaka during the winter transfer window.
Mourinho said on Friday that ''I don't think Kaka will leave,'' adding that keeping the Brazilian would give the team a deeper bench.
The 30-year-old Brazil playmaker has only started four matches this season for Madrid, adding to speculation that he would seek a transfer after failing to secure one last summer.
Madrid paid AC Milan a reported ?65 million (then $92 million) for Kaka in 2009.
Mourinho said that he did not expect the team to make any midseason signings despite being 13 points adrift of Spanish leader Barcelona.
