Manchester United linked with Maicon swoop
Wednesday 07 October 2009
Maicon's agent believes Manchester United have upped their interest in the Inter Milan defender but insists there are no offers on the table.
The Brazil international joined Inter from Monaco in 2006 and has developed into a key player in the Nerazzurri team since Jose Mourinho took over two years ago.
Maicon's impressive performances have caught the eye around Europe but Antonio Caliendo insists the 28-year-old is remaining at the San Siro for the time being.
"United's interest in my client is not something new," he told Tuttopremier.it. "They have been following him for a while.
"Now it seems to me that they are pressing for him but I don't think there has been any concrete offers yet."
