AS Roma are thrilled to have signed Brazilian defender Maicon.

The 31-year old right-back has joined the Italian club from Manchester City after just a year at Eastlands.

Maicon was signed by Roberto Mancini from Inter Milan last summer but has now headed back to Italy after being told by new City boss Manuel Pellegrini that he would not be in his plans for the upcoming campaign.
