The agent of Inter Milan full-back Maicon has played down reports suggesting his client could be on his way to pastures new during the winter transfer window.
French giants Paris St Germain were reported to be keen on landing the Brazil international, with the club in a position to spend big.
A number of other clubs have also been linked with a move for the 30-year-old, who has spent the last six years in Italy.
PSG were believed to be heading the queue, with Maicon having prior experience of life in Ligue 1 from his days at Monaco, but the Samba star's representative insists no deal is in the pipeline.
Despite Maicon having been restricted to just nine appearances for Inter this season, he is happy to stay and fight for his place.
"I categorically deny that any negotiations are in place for a transfer to another club," Roberto Calenda told Sky Sports Italia.
"He is and will be an Inter player and he wants to continue achieving success with the club.
"There has been no contact with (PSG general manager) Leonardo and PSG and no contact with any other clubs."
