Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar is urging Brazil teammate Douglas Maicon to stay with the Serie A champs. Maicon's agent has been touting the fullback to Real Madrid.

During a media conference yesterday, Julio Cesar spotted Maicon and said: "Eh, Maic, no joking around, you must stay in Milan. Don't make me tie you to the gates at Pinetina.

"I want you to write: 'Julio Cesar, next year I am 100 per cent staying at Inter'."
