Kaka, Carvalho to stay at Madrid

Real Madrid have finished their summer transfer dealings and both Kaka and Ricardo Carvalho will remain at the club, claims Marca.

The last major movement from Los Blancos was Esteban Granero’s sale to Queens Park Rangers this week and the report insists neither boss Jose Mourinho, nor President Florentino Perez, are contemplating further business before the end of the transfer deadline.

As a result, Kaka and Carvalho will stay with the Spanish champions until at least next January’s transfer window, after it looked as if both could be on their way out of the Santiago Bernabeu over the summer.

In spite of Mourinho having recently made it clear the pair would play no part in his plans for the 2012-13 campaign, it now appears he will have to accommodate both, although it is expected they will be bit-part players unless there is a sudden change of heart on the Portuguese’s behalf.

In Carvalho’s case, he has not trained with the first-team squad during pre-season and has dedicated himself to finding another team, albeit without success.

Queens Park Rangers were favourites to sign the former Porto and Chelsea star but it is understood the player’s family are happy in Madrid and were reluctant to move back to London.

Kaka, on the other hand, seemed destined for a return to Milan before the clubs were unable to agree a deal.

Consequently, he will now have to try and convince Mourinho to stick by him despite being left out of the squad for the last three games – the 2-1 defeat at Getafe and the two Supercopa de Espana clashes with Barcelona.
