Maicon: Inter claim City move is complete

The full-back's future at the San Siro has been the subject of intense speculation over the summer, with a number of clubs rumoured to be interested in the 31-year-old.

Spanish giants Real Madrid, managed by former Inter boss Jose Mourinho, were linked with a late swoop for the defender.

However, it appears Roberto Mancini - another former Inter chief - has won the race to sign the former Cruzeiro man.

The Italian club have told Sky Sports News that the full-back has now completed a transfer to Manchester City.

City have already wrapped up late deals for Richard Wright and Scott Sinclair, with boss Mancini confirming he is eyeing up to five new faces ahead of Friday night's transfer deadline.
