The player's father has now stepped in to put extra pressure on the Nerazzurri.
"My son can't wait to play for Real Madrid. He is aware that such a destination would be the perfect place to see out his career," he explained to Spanish newspaper AS.
"At Madrid, Maicon would win the same titles he has managed to at Inter. Currently he is enjoying his holidays in northern Brazil, but we are relaxed in the knowledge that the right people are working on negotiations."
