Manchester City Interest In Maicon Is Nothing New - Agent

Inter defender Maicon was once again linked with a move to Manchester City in the press on Tuesday. However, the star's agent, Antonio Caliendo, has stepped in to say no negotiations have taken place at any level.

"[Man City boss Roberto] Mancini has always shown a desire to have Maicon, so for us it is nothing new," he told tuttomercatoweb.

"We will see what happens at the end of the season at Inter. Right now it is hard to imagine [a transfer] because he has a contract with Inter for another three years.

"He does not want to be distracted with rumours from the transfer market, this year is very important because of the World Cup."

The full-back has constantly been linked with Real Madrid and the Citizens over the past year, but Caliendo has typically dismissed reports the former Monaco man will leave the San Siro in the near future.
