Football career 
Maicon had his first abroad adventure in the 2008–09 season, being a defensive mainstay for Madeira's C.D. Nacional, which again qualified for European competition. Courtesy of those solid performances, on 4 June 2009, he moved to league giants and title holders F.C. Porto, in a contract running until 2014; he appeared in only four games in his first year.
After Bruno Alves left for FC Zenit Saint Petersburg, Maicon became a first-team regular in 2010–11, playing in 37 official games as Porto won the treble (including eight in the victorious run in the UEFA Europa League). In the following season – under new manager Vítor Pereira – after Cristian Săpunaru's injury, he beat competition from Uruguayan Jorge Fucile and began being often utilized as a right back.
