Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has moved quickly to quash the possibility of Brazil international Kaka moving to the San Siro.

Kaka has failed to impress since moving to Real Madrid from AC Milan in the summer of 2009, with some reports hinting that he could be heading to Inter in January.

However, Moratti told "Kaka is a very nice idea, but he will not come to Inter."

The 28-year-old has made 32 appearances for Real, finding the net nine times, but has not featured in Jose Mourinho's plans so far this season because of injury.

Meanwhile, Real's sporting director Jorge Valdano picked out Cristiano Ronaldo for special praise after watching Jose Mourinho's team beat Espanyol 3-0.

Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema all found the net in what was Real's third match in just six days.

Although Real finished the game with ten men following Pepe's dismissal, Valdano was pleased with the final result, saying: "It was a great victory, even though there were phases of the game where it was difficult.

"The players managed to overcome it. We have had three games in six days and that demand and effort has taken our freshness away. In the next game we will be in a much better condition.

"Ronaldo's performance was complete. He featured in every dangerous play and proved he has a great personality.

"Benzema is an interesting player who also needs to boost his confidence. He is a young boy that needed to adapt and he has much talent."
