Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni admits Douglas Maicon can still leave this week.
Maicon's agents are desperately trying to find a buyer for the defender.
"As for Maicon, the situation was already clear from the start. We won't be caught unprepared, as we have Javier Zanetti and Jonathan. Obviously Maicon has unique characteristics and we'll see what happens up to the transfer window. If he stays, we will all be happy," said Strama.
