Inter prepare Maicon extension

Inter are ready to renew the contract of Brazilian international Douglas Maicon, according to reports.

The Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that the Nerazzurri want to tighten their grip on the player given that he has caught the eye of Paris Saint-Germain.

The right-back, formerly on Monaco, is presently tied to the Stadio Meazza outfit until June 2013. He could be offered an extension until 2015.

Maicon has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid on numerous occasions in the past.

The 30-year-old, signed in 2006, is getting back to his best after having fitness issues at the start of this campaign.

He’s scored one goal in 10 Serie A appearances this term. He also netted in last night’s Coppa Italia win against Genoa.
