Internazionale have denied receiving a bid from Real Madrid for Adriano.
Internazionale have denied reports that Real Madrid have made an audacious bid for Brazilian striker Adriano.
Press reports suggested that Madrid had offered é¼50 million plus Ronaldo for Adriano's services, a move that would see the former return to his old club.
However, Internazionale president Massimo Moratti firmly stated: "I've never got that offer from Real Madrid, so it isn't true."
Alternative reports have linked Internazionale with a move for controversial Italian forward Antonio Cassano, but Moratti once again quashed the story.
"Cassano? He interests others, not us, especially in this moment," quipped Moratti.
Internazionale are keeping their transfer dealings close to their chest, but Moratti has admitted that they are working on a few possibilities, and they are close to finalising the signing of David Pizarro from Udinese.
