Brazil international Kaka has no intention of leaving Real Madrid this summer and is determined to become a key figure for club and country.
With a succession of niggling knocks having plagued him throughout his time at Santiago Bernabeu, the former World Player of the Year is no longer considered to be untouchable.
He has struggled to hold down a regular role in Jose Mourinho's plans this season, making just 18 starts as Real swept to the Primera Liga title.
It has been suggested that the 30-year-old playmaker will look to move on this summer, in search of first-team football, but he insists that is not the case.
Kaka told Globo: "We have not talked about it (his future) yet as the league is not over.
"My contract still has three years to run and I will keep doing my job.
"Mourinho has been helping me and has given me chances. I do not want to leave Real Madrid."
Kaka, who tasted World Cup glory in 2002, is also determined to force his way back into the international fold - with a home World Cup in 2014 on the mind of all Brazilians.
"I have a good relationship with (coach) Mano Menezes," he said.
"I have spoken to him a few times and he came here to meet with me and Marcelo.
"I have told him that I want to play for the national team again. But I believe my return to the national team will depend on my performances at club level, as that is the reason why players get called up for the national side.
"I will, little by little, get my place back at my club, things will turn out well and I will be called up again."
