thumbnail Hello,

The Brazilian still has two years to run on his current contract with the Blaugrana but he has been heavily linked with a move to a side he considers one of the best in Europe

Adriano believes that a Champions League final pitting Barcelona against Bayern Munich would be a great spectacle.

The Brazilian has been linked with a move to the Allianz Arena in the summer and admitted that he has nothing but respect and admiration for the Bavarians.

"I know that this is not the first time that there is talk of Bayern being interested in me, and I feel very honoured and proud," Adriano told Sport-Bild.

"Bayern are a top club. But I do not know any details, questions should be directed to my agent, Paulo Affonso.

"However, there is an incentive to be connected to such a team. There are few teams with the same calibre and prestige as Bayern Munich.

"If we [Barcelona & Bayern] meet on May 19, it would certainly be one of the most spectacular [Champions League] finals of all time."

Adriano, who still has two years left on his contract with the Blaugrana, also revealed that he is a big fan of German players.

"I think highly of them," he explained. "They have quality and are tactically the benchmark for any coach.

"There is a new generation of players who are incredibly talented. German players are respected all over the world."

The 27-year-old arrived at Camp Nou from Sevilla in 2010 but has failed to nail down a regular starting berth in Pep Guardiola's side and has been linked with a summer move to both Bayern and Juventus.

Barcelona meet AC Milan in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie at San Siro on Wednesday, with Bayern tackling Marseille at the Stade Velodrome on the same day.
