Moratti: 'Maicon is leaving Inter'

President Massimo Moratti has confirmed Douglas Maicon is leaving for Manchester City tonight. “Inter will always be home to Maicon and Julio Cesar.”

The goalkeeper has already terminated his contract by mutual consent and signed a new four-year deal with QPR.

He fought back tears this evening as he saluted the fans at San Siro before kick-off in the Europa League play-off with Vaslui.

Maicon is not even on the bench, though, and Moratti admitted the Brazilian had played his last Nerazzurri match.

“I already saluted them both. It is sad to see them go, but also a motivation for them to do well elsewhere,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We care about them and Inter will always be home to Maicon and Julio Cesar.”

Maicon is expected to complete his transfer to Manchester City for €4m tomorrow.
