Defender to commit his future until 2014

Inter Milan defender Maicon is poised to sign a new deal at the club to end speculation over his future. The Brazilian's time at the San Siro has been the subject of conjecture in recent months with the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United all linked with the right-back. However, Inter are close to tying down Maicon to a new long-term, according to the player's representative. "It is practically a done deal," agent Antonio Caliendo told Calcio News 24 "It is basically what we expected and Inter paid special attention to his needs." Maicon is expected to sign a two-year contract extension to keep him with the Nerazzurri until 2014.
