Ramon Calderon has hinted that Real Madrid will not try and sign Milan playmaker Kaka at the end of the season.
Kaka has been a long-term target for Calderon, who vowed to sign the Brazilian when he was elected Real president in 2006. Milan, however, have always insisted that they have no intention of selling their prize asset.
Calderon told Marca: “This is not the best time to talk about transfers. At the end of the season we will see.
“Any signing must fit three criteria, firstly that the coach and sport director want him, secondly that he fits the behaviour and philosophy of the club, and thirdly that he can help the team become better.
Calderon revealed coach Bernd Schuster and sporting director Predrag Mijatovic have not told him to bid for Kaka.
“With Kaka the first criteria is not met. I have not asked either Schuster or Mijatovic.”
