Inter Milan right-back Maicon plans to remain at the San Siro - as long as he is given an improved contract.
The 27-year-old, who was a key figure as Jose Mourinho's Inter clinched a fourth straight Serie A title last term, has been linked with Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid this summer.
However, he 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.Reuse content
