Inter striker Adriano is back to his old habits as he misses the plane which was supposed to take him back to Milan today, according to reports.
The Brazilian ace was expected to return to Appiano Gentile at lunch-time, but he seems to have disappeared out of the blue.
La Gazzetta Dello Sport claims Adriano was due to board a flight from Brazil to Milan with Julio Cesar, but the paper claims only one of those players is on the flight home, and it is not the striker.
The report suggests Inter are aware of the player's disappearance, but the club have not made any official announcement just yet. It's not the first time Adriano has been late returning from Brazil. The same thing happened back in January when he returned from the Christmas break.
Inter have laid on a special private plane to bring back the striker in the past, but they didn't bother this time. Jose Mourinho is likely to be furious as everyone bar Adriano and Maicon, who has special permission because of injury, have returned from international duty.
The striker is not doing himself any favours for his Nerazzurri career as he continues to be linked with an exit.
No other Italian news agencies including Sky Sport Italia have reported La Gazzetta's claims as Adriano's whereabouts continue to be a mystery.
