Inter Ponder Maicon Swap With Real Madrid For Karim Benzema - Report

Inter are ready to dangle Maicon as bait for Real Madrid ace Karim Benzema.
Inter are set to exhaust Maicon's value by offering him as part of a swap scheme to Real Madrid in return for Karim Benzema.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Inter are not impressed with Maicon's lack of form this term.

The player's agent Antonio Caliendo recently blamed the club, suggesting a failed move the Real Madrid could be behind his poor start.

And with Inter reluctant to invest in Maicon's uncertainty, they will work to pass him onto Real Madrid in January. The Brazilian will be offered to Madrid in return for a straight swap with Benzema.

The French striker wants regular action. He feels he has a droit to playing at the Bernabeu, and could leave if he doesn't get it - offering Inter a chance to pounce.

However, Manchester United and Juventus are also said to be keen on the hitman.
