Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo denies reports that club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has met with Real Madrid pair Kaka and Gonzalo Higuain.

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has rejected rumours that the club's president has met with Kaka and Gonzalo Higuain.

The title-chasing Ligue 1 side are guaranteed Champions League football next season and, with the Qatar Investment Authority's wealthy backing, they are expected to make high-profile signings this summer.

It had been reported that president Nasser Al-Khelaifi had spoken to the Real Madrid pair over potential moves to Parc des Princes.

While Leonardo admits that he is interested in the players, he is adamant that the club's hierarchy has not yet met with any player from the Spanish champions.

"Nasser has never met either Kaka or Higuain," Leonardo told AFP. "It's been written as fact, but Nasser has never met Kaka or Higuain.

"Someone else from the club? Never. There is a respect over players between great clubs.

"Today, we're in talks. Not just with him, but in the global market. We can talk to 15,000 players and do nothing, but at least we've been involved."

PSG have also been heavily linked with a move for AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato.
