Maicon move in doubt

ROME, July 21- Brazil full-back Maicon's proposed move from European champions Inter Milan to big-spending Spanish giants Real Madrid is in doubt, according to the player's agent on Wednesday.Antonio Caliendo told Italian TV sports channel Sky Sport 24 that unless something changes, the 28-year-old will be staying in Italy.

"If things stay the same, I believe he will stay," said Caliendo, who claimed to know nothing about rumours circulating in the Spanish press that Real have given Maicon an ultimatum.

The Brazilian was part of then coach Jose Mourinho’s side that stormed to the treble last season and now the Portuguese boss wants his former charge to join him at his new home in the Bernabeu.

Spanish daily Marca on Wednesday claimed Real have tabled a 22 million euro bid for the right-back, a member of Brazil’s World Cup squad in South Africa.

However, the Spanish press say Real are fed up with Inter’s postulating and have given Inter president Massimo Moratti a 72-hour ultimatum to accept their offer or they will look elsewhere.

Moratti is believed to be holding out for 30 million euros for a player he snapped up from Monaco four years ago.

Maicon has twice won both the Coppa America and the Confederations Cup with Brazil, for whom he has 63 caps.
