Internazionale defender Maicon claims he now wants to stay in Italy just days after revealing his interest in joining Real Madrid.
The Brazil international recently suggested that it would be an "honour" to follow former Inter boss Jose Mourinho to the Spanish giants.
However, the £20million-rated full-back now claims he wants to stay in Milan where he helped Inter win a domestic double and Champions League crown last season.
"I want to stay in Italy," he said when speaking from Brazil's World Cup training base in South Africa.
"I will only leave if (owner) Massimo Moratti sells me. My intention is to stay with Inter. I would only go away if the club asked me to."
