Inter Will Sell Maicon If A 'Madrid-Style' Bid Comes In Claims Amadeo Carboni

Deal seems to be getting closer...
Inter are prepared to allow Maicon to leave for Real Madrid if a "Madrid style" offer comes in for the Brazilian, according to Rafael Benitez's personal assistant Amadeo Carboni.

It is understood that los Merengues have tabled a bid of 25 million but that falls some way short of the European champions 35 million valuation bu Carboni believes an improved bid will see the two club's do business.

"Maicon is an awesome player who is ahead of [Daniel] Alves for Brazil, but he is 30-years-old [he is 28]. If the offer they need to make comes, I'd support the release [of the player]. If a Madrid-style offer comes, he'd be sold because his career is ending," Carboni is quoted as saying by AS.

Maicon's agent Antonio Caliendo says the player has a greater hunger for trophies with Madrid now that he has won everything with the Nerazzurri and is hopeful a deal can be completed.

"Maicon has won everything this season at Inter, and today has more hunger for titles with Real Madrid than Inter. [Massimo] Moratti and Florentino [Perez] are good friends. I hope that for the good of all, they will be able to find the middle ground," he said.
