Brazilian makes Etihad Stadium move.
Brazilian defender Maicon has joined Manchester City on a permanent contract.
The right-back moves to the Blues from Inter Milan for an undisclosed fee.
Roberto Mancini is an admirer of the 31-year-old having worked with him for two seasons while in charge at Inter and the defender is familiar with the 3-5-2 formation the City boss has been experimenting with in pre-season.

Roberto Mancini appears to be making up for lost time having spent much of the last past week complaining about the lack of new additions the Man City boss has now nabbed two new signings in the space of 24 hours.
First Scott Sinclair completed his move to the Etihad Stadium and now the Italian has brought in Maicon from Inter Milan.
Roberto Mancini knows the 31 year old right-back well from his time in charge of the San Siro side and the Brazilian international will now rival the likes of Pablo Zabaleta and Micah Richards for the spot on the right hand side of the defence.
The former Monaco man made 235 appearances over six seasons with the Serie A giants, helping the Nerazzurri to four domestic titles and a Champions League success.
