As Inter fans welcome the news that a possible Ibrahimovic departure looks less than likely, it now seems they are set for an nervous wait to discover the fate of Brazilian star Douglas Maicon.
With the talented full-back currently in action in South Africa as Brazil prepare for the Confederations Cup, his future will not be decided until the conclusion of the tournament.
Speaking from the Brazil training camp, Maicon set a July date with Inter, as he looks to reflect for a little longer on whether to remain at the San Siro for the coming season.
“I am happy in Milan and have a contract with Inter until 2013," he stated.
“However, I still need to weigh up some things with regards to my future. I will make a decision after the Confederations Cup, as for now, I want to focus on Brazil.”
With the lure of Madrid seemingly a temptation for Maicon, who would bet against Perez’s millions tempting the Brazilian to make a decision to leave the San Siro?
