Posted on | September 22, 2011 | No Comments

Anzhi Makhachkala are one of the newest big spenders from football.


The Russian club have signed Roberto Carlos, Yuri Zhirkov, Dzsudzsak and Samuel Eto’o and their officials declared that they are willing to be a force in Europe in the next five years.

Maicon was the subject of transfers for the last two summer with Real Madrid in pole position for the Brazilian defender but the asking price was considered too big even for a club like Real.

The 30 years old defender is still considered one of the best right defenders in the world. Inter have put a  €25 millions price tag on their defender but is believed that a sum of around €15 millions would be enough now to lure him away from San Siro. The transfer could be done in this winter transfer period.

Maicon has one of the biggest salaries at Inter and his performances decreased lately also his commitment for the club.

Maicon started his senior career at Cruzeiro. He moved to Monaco in 2004 and after only two years he was  transferred to Inter. For the national team he played in 66 games and scored 6 goals.
