This option today has more details according to "La Gazzetta...". Real Madrid would pay Inter 20M€ for Maicon, give Inter Milan KAKA on loan, plus Real Madrid would pay 50% of Kaka´s yearly salary.
|Inter Milan player Maicon|
The "obsession" by Mourinho with having Maicon in his team is not new & Mourinho tried last year to get the Brazilian over to Real Madrid. The idea would be to put Maicon on the right-back position & move Sergio Ramos to the centre of the defense. Mourinho has always said that Sergio Ramos is better as a Central Defender than on the flank.
Some observers however are not too keen on the idea of getting Maicon over to Madrid. The player has already 30 years of age & his alleged "nightlife - lifestyle" has been also questioned. But the Inter Milan player is a genetically gifted Sportsman & still has 2 - 3 years left to give at the maximum level. Plus Mourinho is under pressure to deliver "titles" this coming season & this signing has a short-term objective/project written all over it.
Stay tuned for developments. At this stage it is just rumour, coming out of Italy, & it is best & wise not to make any assertive comments or conclusions with this story.
