Douglas Maicon's father insists the fullback is happy at Manchester City.

Maicon's father, Manoel Sisenando, says he is not aware of any interest from Atletico Mineiro.

He told Lancenet: "I received calls from Belo Horizonte (where Mineiro is based) asking if Maicon is there but he is in England.

"I'm not aware of any Atletico Mineiro interest for my son.

"He is happy at the club and has a contract until 2015. He was playing for the youth team to be match fit as he got injured recently.

"It's complicated to say what will happen but for now his focus is on Manchester. But we know how dynamic football is."
