Disciplined defender Maicon joined the Blues from Inter Milan in August 2012 for an undisclosed fee.
The Brazil international was signed by Roberto Mancini in the summer transfer window as the Italian looked to strengthen his squad and defend the Premier League title.
Maicon has earned a reputation as one of the game’s most formidable right backs, but has a strong attacking dimension to his game and is comfortable playing further forward.
He spent six seasons at Inter making 235 appearances and scoring 20 goals.
In 2010 was awarded the UEFA Defender of the Year Award for his performances during the club’s treble-winning season.
He was called up to the Brazilian national team in 2003 and scored one of the best goals at the 2010 World Cup in Brazil’s game against North Korea.
