New Paris St Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has played down talk he will try to be reunited with his former AC Milan players Alexandre Pato and Kaka in January.
Pato and Kaka, now at Real Madrid, both played under Ancelotti during the Italian's lengthy spell in charge at the San Siro.
Recent speculation has claimed that ambitious PSG are planning bids to land Brazilian striker Pato from Milan and compatriot Kaka from Real during the transfer window.
However, while Ancelotti is keen to improve his squad this month, he confirmed he will not be pursuing any interest in Kaka or Pato.
"Pato is a player of Milan and he has a contract, so we are not interested in him," Ancelotti told AFP after his side's friendly defeat by the Rossoneri in which Pato scored the only goal.
"Right now, there is no chance to sign Kaka. We are in the middle of a transfer window and I will discuss with the club how we can improve the team.
"I do not want to talk about individual cases, like Pato or Kaka, both of whom are under contract.
"We will work to sign some players, but in order to do so, it is necessary that clubs are sellers."
Milan have also insisted that they expect Pato to stay at the club, while Kaka's agent revealed in November that the playmaker was not looking to leave Real.
