Maxwell has stated his intention to see out his contract at Paris Saint-Germain, but has admitted he could still finish his career in his native Brazil.
Picked up from Barcelona in January last year, Maxwell, 31, was one of PSG's most consistent performers in their run to the Ligue 1 title last season. Though the French champions are reportedly seeking to bring Lille's highly-rated left-back Lucas Digne to the Parc des Princes this summer, the move is viewed more as providing cover and an eventual successor to Maxwell rather than the France Under-20 international immediately usurping the Brazilian.
The former Ajax and Inter Milan defender told Globoesporte he certainly does not see himself leaving the French capital in the immediate future.
"My objective is to stay until the end of my contract in 2015," he said. "We'll see what comes along after that. I'll look at the offers."
Plucked from Cruzeiro by Ajax while still in his teens, Maxwell has slipped snugly into European football, and already speaks good French, unlike many of PSG's other cosmopolitan signings. However, despite having played in Europe for more than a decade, he admitted he could also be tempted to join Brazil's fast-improving domestic league.
"I've never ruled out a return to Brazil, even if I've never played there as a professional," he said. "I'm a supporter of Vasco da Gama. We'll see about that when the time comes."
