Striker's spell with Nerazzurri to end imminently

Adriano could have his Inter Milan contract terminated within the next 24 hours, according to the player's agent. The Brazilian striker failed to return to Italy two weeks ago from international duty announcing he was taking a leave of absence because he had "lost the joy of playing". After insisting he did not want to return to the San Siro, Adriano's agent Gilmar Rinaldi confirmed he will hold talks with Inter to cancel the 27-year-old's contract. "Today we'll have some news, maybe by the end of the day," Rinaldi told GloboEsporte. "I am sorting out some things on this and I might fly to Italy tomorrow." Reports in Italy suggest Inter will insist on a clause that would require their permission before Adriano signs with another club. Without that clause, the club would insist on compensation for the Brazilian breaking his contract.
