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," said Maicon's agent Antonio Caliendo to 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 yesterday 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 per cent 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."Reuse content
