Inter Milan's Brazil international Maicon has dismissed talk suggesting he will leave the club this summer.

The full-back has been strongly linked with a move to England or Spain of late, with Chelsea reported to be leading the race for his signature.

Maicon, though, insists there is no substance to the reports and he remains fully committed to Jose Mourinho's side.

"I'm ready to restart with Inter over the summer," he told Corriere dello Sport, having seen his 2008/09 campaign hampered by injury.

"There is a 100 per cent chance that I will stay here.

"Many players are attracted by the Premier League and La Liga, but I like Serie A.

"I am happy here because this club has allowed me to prove my worth domestically and in Europe.

"It is thanks to Inter that I have regained my place in the national side."

Maicon is under contract with Inter until 2013 and the Serie A champions have given no indication that they would be willing to part with his services.
