Chelsea could bid for Maicon - agent

23 June 2009 09:29
Maicon's agent believes Chelsea will be among the teams who attempt to lure the defender away from Inter Milan this summer. The Brazil international has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid, but Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is also a fan of 27-year-old wing-back. "I believe Ancelotti is one of Maicon's biggest admirers," Maicon's agent Antonio Caliendo told Sky Italia. "It's not just Real Madrid but Chelsea who also could make a move (for Maicon). "I'm not saying that would be the case because the possibility (of buying the player) is open to every club. "However, what I would like to point out is that you don't negotiate for a champion, you go there, you buy him and that's that. "You need to make a financial effort to buy a champion." Inter president Massimo Moratti confirmed on Monday that there was a 50% chance that Maicon would leave the club this summer. Caliendo believes Inter are doing the right thing by evaluating the offers. "There's still a 50% chance," said Caliendo. "We adapt to what the (club) president wishes as he (Maicon) is tied to a four-year contract with the club. Moratti has made the right decision by listening to offers."
