Il Tempo: Maicon’s agent may meet with Pallotta in Manchester

According to Il Tempo, Maicon’s agent Roberto Calenda may meet with president James Pallotta in Manchester this evening regarding the renewal of the Brazilian.

Roma’s president will be in attendance for today’s Champions League clash against the English club along with Maicon’s agent, who is eager to discuss a renewal for the full-back. The Brazilian joined Roma last summer and signed a two year contract with the club, which will expire in June 2015. The former Inter man has been in top-form for the Giallorossi this season and it’s likely that he will sign a one year deal with an option for a second. Both Maicon, his agent, and Rudi Garcia are extremely interested in extending his stay in the capital and an agreement for a deal should not be difficult to find.
