The agent of Douglas Maicon has warned Real Madrid that Manchester City are also interested in the Inter Milan fullback.

Maicon is understood to be pricing himself out of a move to Madrid.

But agent Antonio Caliendo insists: “The player is on the market, but we don't know what Inter's wishes are.

“The deal with Real Madrid isn't very clear. I hope to have more clarity in the next few hours.

“It's clear that every club who signs a player thinks about paying him more than necessary, but perhaps Real underestimate the value of the player.

“Spanish clubs spend 10s and 10s of millions then balk at a million for Maicon. Something isn't right here.

“In Madrid there are also players who earn €12m a year. Maicon was a big investment for Inter and it's right that they now name their price.

“The thing that surprises me is Real Madrid's behaviour. They underestimate the support a champion like Maicon could give them.

“Maicon's first option is Real Madrid. Manchester City are very interested, but Madrid are always in front.

“We will try to find a solution with Real Madrid on the theme of Maicon.”
