Reports: Maicon renews with Roma

According to the latest reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport, AS Roma have come to an agreement with Brazilian right-back Maicon on a contract extension.

The Brazilian arrived to the capital last summer on a free transfer from Manchester City after he was not in the plans of Manuel Pellegrini. Maicon signed a two year contract last summer worth €3 million per season, but it’s reported the former Inter man will sign an extension until June 2016 worth €2.9 million per season with the Giallorossi.
