Rio de Janeiro : Inter Milan defender Maicon reportedly wants to return to Brazilian football club Cruzeiro.

The 30-year-old Champions League winner is involved in a legal battle to leave the Italian Serie A club, reports said.

"It`s a delicate situation with a legal process and millions of dollars involved," the player`s agent Antonio Calienda said.

"I think his destination will be Brazil. I don`t know the details and it`s still not clear yet what he will do," he said.

Cruzeiro president Gilvan Tavares this week said the club was close to signing a high-quality right-back, fuelling speculation that Maicon would return to his former club.

Maicon has made 177 first-team appearances for Inter since joining the San Siro outfit in 2006.
