Real Madrid will have a decision on their pursuit of Inter Milan fullback Douglas Maicon in the next 24 hours.

The Brazil international right-back is Real Madrid's No 1 transfer target this summer, but Inter have rejected their overtures so far.

Florentino Perez reportedly offered €28m for Maicon earlier this month, but Inter are said to be holding out for a bid closer to €34m.

AS says representatives from the two clubs met yesterday together with Maicon's agent Antonio Caliendo.

Talks will continue today with a view to reaching a definitive conclusion.
