Cicinho wants Brazil return and not Barca

Roma right-back Cicinho insists that while he is flattered by Barcelona's reported interest, he is seeking a return to Brazil.

Speculation is rife that Barca are set to make a 10million euro offer for Cicinho, who is under contract at the Giallorossi until 2012.

However, the 29-year-old claims he has been looking to move back to Brazil since joining Roma two years ago from Real Madrid.

"I came to know about Barcelona's interest through the press," Cicinho told Globoesporte.com. "No official offer has been made to me.

"It's normal that I'm happy that a great club like Barca is interested in me. But my own wish at the moment is to return to Brazil.

"I don't feel happy in Europe and I've been trying to do this for two years, I've also spoken several times to (Sao Paolo president) Juvenal Juvencio, but Roma won't release me."

Cicinho has not ruled out a move to the Nou Camp completely, however.

He added: "As I said I have not been contacted at all by Barcelona and I am continuing working hard and dedicating myself to the maximum in Roma.

"I don't have an agent but a friend who looks after my business. I've not talked to him yet.

"It's obvious that if Barcelona's offer suits everyone it would make me happy also.

"At the moment I'm concentrating on rehabilitation and I'm trying not to listen to all the speculation about me."
