Inter are making plans to end their relationship with Adriano and rescind his contract at the end of the season following the recent debacle.
The Brazilian stepped of out line with his club as he decided to stay in his homeland following a spell on international duty. Jose Mourinho expressed his disappointment with the player on Friday and Il Corriere Dello Sport claims the club have leaped into action in an attempt to cut all ties with the hitman.
The report suggests that the Nerazzurri will terminate Adriano's deal in May. The club's legal team have been analysing the contract to find out if a rescission is possible.
Although scrapping the contract is possible, the club have inserted special clauses that mean Adriano will only be able to play for a Brazilian side if he does leave.
Inter are ready to allow the player to depart on a free transfer to Flamengo, provided he stays in Brazil for the next two years. If he comes back to play for another European side within that time, he is likely to incur a heavy penalty, which he would have to pay to Inter president Massimo Moratti.
In addition, the club are furious with all the negative media coverage. Inter feel Adriano's recent antics have cast a shadow over the club's image and they are ready to seek damages for defamation.
