Real Madrid Target Maicon: I Want To Stay At Inter

Brazilian defender changes mind over Real Madrid move...
Inter defender Douglas Maicon has had a change of heart in relation to his Real Madrid ambition by admitting he wants to remain where he is, just days after telling Spanish media the contrary.

Maicon claimed his dream was to team up with Jose Mourinho at the Bernabeu earlier this week.

"What I want is to play for Madrid and it would be an honour for me to be there because I have said it would be a great opportunity in my career," he told AS two days ago.

But he has now told the media in South Africa that he prefers to stay at San Siro and will only leave if the club sanctions his transfer.

"I want to stay in Italy," he told the press.

"I will only leave if Massimo Moratti sells me. My intention is to stay with Inter. I would only go away if the club asked me to."
