The Brazilian right-back has made just eight appearances since joining from Inter Milan in August but that is mainly due to injury says his representative Roberto Calenda who has denied claims he is looking for an early Etihad Stadium exit.
"He injured a heel in the first Champions League game against Real Madrid, and this is the only reason he missed so many games," Calenda told Interlive.ie.
"A return to Inter Milan is absolutely impossible.
"When Maicon is physically fine, he has always played as a regular, offering good performances.
"I met him at the Manchester derby and he is very well there."
