Brazil international Maicon could leave Internazionale at the end of the season, according to his agent, with Manchester City his likely destination.
Inter president Massimo Moratti is believed to be unwilling to let the 28-year-old leave the current Serie A leaders but agent Antonio Caliendo has not ruled out the possibility of Maicon moving in the summer.
"When you have a contract in the way, it takes two parties to get things done," said Caliendo."We are aware of offers for Maicon but for him to leave Inter, the club must agree to it.
"Both parties have to benefit from it. If there were this benefit we could talk about it. So, the choice is up to president Moratti, it's him who will decide whether to release Maicon.
"Mancini has always expressed his desire to have Maicon, so it doesn't come as a surprise. We'll see what Inter intend to do at the end of the season."
