Inter extension for Maicon?

There are reports Douglas Maicon could remain at Inter with a new contract that includes lower wages.

The right-back is widely expected to leave San Siro this summer, especially as he was left out of their squad list for the Europa League preliminary round against Hajduk Split.

PSG, Chelsea and Real Madrid have all been linked with the Brazilian.

However, this morning La Gazzetta dello Sport made a surprising claim that Maicon could remain with the Nerazzurri instead.

It’s reported Maicon would extend his Inter contract but keep the same overall wages, therefore spreading the cost over a number of years.

This is partly because nobody has yet reached the €8m asking price.
