AC Milan pair Kaka and Carlo Ancelotti will be going nowhere despite reported interest in them from Real Madrid, according to the Italian club's vice-president Adriano Galliani.
Former world player of the year Kaka and coach Ancelotti have long been linked with the Spanish champions as well as clubs in the English Premier League - Milan turned down a bid from Manchester City for Kaka in January while Chelsea are believed to be interested in hiring Ancelotti next season.
But Galliani is adamant that both will be plying their trades at the San Siro next season and spoke publically on the matter on Wednesday.
"Every morning I read some entertaining stories (in the newspapers) and I have a laugh but the reality, and it's as clear as day, is quite another thing," he told Milan's official website.
"The reality is that there is no ongoing transfer dealing with regards Ricardo Kaka and given that we're talking about it and ahead of whatever comes out next, there isn't for any of our squad.
"In the same vein I repeat that Milan have had no contact whatsoever with any other coach as we have Carlo Ancelotti who is tied to the club by a contract that runs until June 2010."
