Real Madrid have confirmed they are still in talks with AC Milan over a possible move for Brazilian playmaker Kaka.
Kaka's future has been the subject of intense speculation for the last few weeks with the forward well down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Milan vice-president Adriano Gallaini appeared to rule out a move for Kaka over the weekend after several rounds of talks between both clubs.
However, Real assistant manager Aitor Karanka has revealed talks are still ongoing and that a deal could still happen before the close of the transfer window.
"We are still negotiating over the Kaka situation and we'll see how it ends, otherwise he will be an extra man for the squad," said Karanka.
