Agent: Brazilian star 'interesting Manchester United'


Inter Milan defender Maicon is attracting the interest of Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, according to Italian agent Roberto Calenda.

Maicon has established himself as one of the finest full-backs in the world since his move to the San Siro in 2006 and, it would appear, has no shortage of admirers.

And, says Calenda, PSG, Real and United are among the clubs monitoring the situation of the 30-year-old Brazilian.

"Maicon interests Paris Saint Germain, but also other clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United," he told Made in Foot.

"Leonardo and (Carlo) Ancelotti want to build a great team in Paris, so it's normal to be linked with Maicon, who is the best player in his position.

"However, the one who decides will be (Inter president Massimo) Moratti."

Nouveau-riche PSG have already reportedly made a bid for Maicon, but the supposed interest of Manchester United and Real Madrid comes as more of a surprise.

Both clubs have adequate cover at full-back, with United boasting the likes of Patrice Evra and the Da Silva twins, while both Phil Jones and Chris Smalling can play in wide defensive positions.

Real, meanwhile, spent €30 million to bring Fabio Coentrao to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer, and also have the supreme talents of Sergio Ramos and Marcelo among their number.
