Inter Absentee Adriano Will Not Quit Football - Agent

The big hitman will not quit the game, despite voices claiming the contrary...
Adriano's agent has landed in Milan to hold talks with Inter over the player's future, and he insists his client will not quit the game.

The Brazilian ace is still believed to be in Rio de Janeiro, but his agent has made the long-haul flight across the Atlantic this morning, and he is currently locked in talks with the Nerazzurri's chiefs.

Despite the constant flow of speculation surrounding Adriano, Gilmar Rinaldi insists his man will not hang up his boots.

"Adriano will not leave football," Rinaldi told Sportmediaset.it after stepping off the plane at Malpensa airport.

"Adriano just needs a couple of months to regain some tranquility."

Reports in Brazil suggested Flamengo were ready to welcome the troubled striker, but Rinaldi insists no club has been in touch seeking his services.

"There aren't any other teams at the moment. I will not rule out the possibility that he will return to play for Inter," added the agent.
