Inter Milan defender Maicon says he will snub a move to Manchester City or Chelsea and stay at the San Siro - as long as he is given a new and improved contract.
The 27-year-old, who was a key figure in Jose Mourinho's Serie A title-winning team last season, is being chased by City, Chelsea and Real Madrid.
However, the right-back insists he is settled in Italy and believes his demands will be met by Inter.
'As I have mentioned many times, I want to remain at Inter,' said Maicon, who won the Confederations Cup with Brazil in South Africa yesterday.
''I am happy to play at Inter. We can reach an agreement without any problems.
'If they (Inter) have watched my performances in the Confederations Cup and want to recognise what I've done (with an improved contract), I will happily remain at Inter.
'Now I'm going to Sao Paulo and then to Belo Horizonte with my wife and children. I am very tired and I need to go on holiday.'
Maicon is under contract with the Nerazzurri until June 2013.
