The Russian Premier League fat-cats Anzhi Makhachkala have denied the Spanish media reports sending Real Madrid star Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, commonly known as Kaká, to the Dagestani side.

The reports suggested the deal could be reached on Tuesday. The source mentioned last week’s meetings between the Russian club’s sporting director Roberto Carlos and Real’s management in Madrid as indirect proof but Anzhi quickly denied the claims.

"That's stupidity," club advisor German Tkachenko told the Russian Dozhd TV channel. "Even if Kaka is a great person, and he was a brilliant player, Anzhi have never held negotiations with Real or Kaka about his transfer."

This winter the 30 year old, who seems to have completely lost the trust of Jose Mourinho and a place in Real Madrid’s starting 11, could have joined either AC Milan where he became famous, or Turkish giants Galatasaray.

However, the Italian side withdrew from talks due to financial reasons, while the Turks preferred Dutch star Wesley Snejder to the 2007 Ballon d’Or winner.

With the transfer period concluding in Europe on January 31, and Russia’s open till March, Anzhi is now the only possible destination for Kaka if any.

The Makhachkala side currently sit second in the Premier League close on CSKA Moscow’s heels, have already proven they can afford any player, at least in terms of finance.
