Adriano Agent Rules Out Roma Move

The player's agent has categorically ruled out an Italian return for his client...
Flamengo striker Adriano will not be making a January switch to Roma, says agent Gilmar Rinaldi.

The former Inter hitman has been linked with a return to Serie A, and reports around the peninsula on Tuesday morning suggested the Lupi were keen on landing him.

However, Rinaldi has weighed up the situation, claiming there is no chance his client will move ahead of the World Cup.

"I have never heard from Roma directors. In any case there's no point talking with them because Adriano is not interested," Rinaldi told

"He wants to stay in Brazil and play with Flamengo until the World Cup. He is doing well here and he has [Carlos] Dunga's guarantee as he follows him regularly.

"We will see what happens after the World Cup."
