Maicon is top of Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini's summer wish-list, according to the Brazilian's agent.

The Inter Milan full-back has been linked with a move this summer having stood out in the Nerazzurri's treble-winning side this season.

Real Madrid have been reported as the Brazil international's most likely destination, with Jose Mourinho having just left Inter to take charge of the Spanish giants.

But Maicon's agent, Antonio Caliendo, claims Chelsea and Premier League rivals City are also firmly in the hunt.

Mancini signed the 28-year-old for Inter from Monaco in the summer of 2006 and Caliendo reckons a swoop for Maicon could spark City's latest spending spree.

"The situation is very clear - in life, everything is bought and sold, except love," he told calciomercato.it.

Decision time

"His future is being decided in the coming days.

"Have Chelsea revived their interest? As I've always said, there isn't only Real Madrid interested in Maicon.

"I don't neglect Manchester City either. Roberto Mancini has coached him and Maicon is the first name on the pad of the former Inter coach."
