According to TalkSPORT, the 30 year old is keen to leave the San Siro this summer and had originally looked to be on way to PSG.

However the arrival of Chelsea on the scene could dash the French side’s hopes of landing the 66 times capped Brazilian star.

The former Monaco and Cruzeiro star had also been linked with a return to his homeland as well as a move to Real Madrid but for now it seems he is set to continue his player career in Europe.

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo is on the lookout for a right back following the departure of Jose Boswinga. Maicon is rated as one of Europe’s top defender’s but endured a frustrating season last season as injuries hampered his playing time.

Should Chelsea complete a move for Maicon, he would join fellow new recruits Eden Hazard and Marko Marin at Stamford Bridge next season.
