The Brazil midfielder has struggled for form and fitness at the Bernabeu and has been tipped to leave in the summer, with a return to Milan or a move to the Premier League touted.

Kaka has learned English in recent years and speculation increased that he would be reunited with his former Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea after his mother announced on Twitter that she was coming to London to do 'God's work'.

Kaka confirmed that his mother is indeed moving to London, but only to preach - the family are committed Christians - and that he had no plans to join her yet.

"I want to stay at Real Madrid, and I want to play for Real Madrid," he said.

"My mother is coming to live in London next year. She is a preacher and she is coming to talk about God.

"But I have a challenge with Real Madrid. I don't want to think now about playing in the Premier League or going back to Italy.

"I want to get back in good shape and play for Real Madrid next season.

"I have a good relationship with Carlo (Ancelotti) but the truth is that I want to stay in Madrid, I want to play in Madrid and I want to live in Madrid."
