Inter president Moratti plays down Kaka rumours

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has played down suggestions that the Treble winners could attempt to coax Kaka away from Real Madrid.

• Mourinho wants a new striker

Corriere dello Sport reported on Wednesday that Inter were considering a possible move for Kaka, who has fond memories of Italian football following his successful spell with AC Milan.

The Brazilian joined Real Madrid for fee of €65 million in June 2009 but his debut season in Spain was hampered by injuries and loss of form. With Real investing in Sergio Canales and Mesut Ozil this season, it has been suggested that Kaka could be allowed to leave the Bernabeu.

Though Moratti is not ready to dismiss the idea completely, he says there has been no contact with Real coach and former Inter boss Jose Mourinho.

"It could be a good idea but it did not come from us. I also read it in the paper," Moratti said. "I have never spoken with Mourinho."

In response to another somewhat fanciful rumour, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani says the club would be interested in signing Mario Balotelli. The forward, known to be a Rossoneri fan, swapped Inter for Manchester City this summer.

When asked if he would be open to signing Balotelli at some stage in the future, Galliani replied: "Yes, I would like to."
