Inter striker Adriano could be rewarded with a new deal if his good performances continue until the end of season.
The hitman has had a turbulent term, but the worst is now behind him after being put through Jose Mourinho's disciplinary school. Adriano now seems like he is back to his best and was outstanding against Milan on Sunday.
His current deal expires in 2010 and Inter will risk losing him on a free transfer in January if they fail to offer him a new package before then.
FCinternews.it claims the club will keep a close eye on Adriano until the end of the season to see if he deserves to be rewarded with a new deal. A number of voices in the past suggested a summer exit but, with his form ever improving, that possibility seems unlikely.
In addition, the Nerazzurri have always stuck by their man. Mourinho and club president Massimo Moratti seem to have a deep-set belief in the Brazilian’s ability.
Reports also suggest that Robert Acquafresca will be called back from Cagliari in May as a reward for his great form with the Sardianian side.
