Internazionale right-back Maicon has paved the way for a move to Real Madrid after declaring an interest in following Jose Mourinho to Spain.
Mourinho has been confirmed as the new coach of the Spanish giants this week after leaving Inter following their Champions League final success over Bayern Munich.
Maicon is rumoured to be one of the players on his summer wish-list and the Brazil international has now admitted that a move to Madrid would be an appealing prospect.
"What I want is to play for Madrid and it would be an honour for me to be there because I have said it would be a great opportunity in my career," he told AS.
"With Manchester City I have nothing, I can assure that. I will make it very clear to prevent misunderstandings: I want to play for Madrid, I do not want to go to Manchester City.
"Moreover, I repeat that I have nothing with the English club."
