The agent of Douglas Maicon expects Inter Milan to hand him a pay-rise after a move to Real Madrid came to nothing.

The Brazilian had been on the verge of a €28m move to Real Madrid, but this week President Massimo Moratti declared he was no longer for sale.

"I have just spoken to the player," confessed agent Antonio Caliendo.

"He said to me: 'After five Scudetti, Moratti has noticed he has a real champion under his own roof.'

"I think Inter ought to show a little recognition to a player like Maicon."
