Chelsea are reported to have joined the race to try and sign Internazionale's Brazilian wing-back Maicon.
Real Madrid have been strongly linked with the South American, but Maicon's agent, Antonio Caliendo, has claimed that several clubs in England are now showing an interest.
He told Terra: "Not only Real Madrid have asked me about Maicon.
"The other team that has asked about Maicon is Chelsea and there are also three other English teams that are interested.
"However, personally I think that Inter are not interested in doing business.
"I think that the only way they would let him go is if there is a very large offer."
Maicon joined Inter in the summer of 2006 from French side Monaco, having made his name in his homeland with Cruzeiro.
