Inter striker Adriano rules out move to Fluminese

Inter Milan striker Adriano has ruled out a return to Brazil next year.

Adriano has been back in his homeland on international duty ahead of tonight's game against Portugal, but SporTV claimed the 26-year-old was also using the trip to talk to Fluminense about a deal to play in the Campeonato Brasileiro in 2009.

But Adriano rejected the report and insisted he will see out his contract with Inter, which would keep him in Milan until at least 2010.

"I came to Brazil to play for the Brazilian national team. That's the only thing I am worried about right now," Adriano said.

"My contract with Inter runs to until 2010 and these reports are nonsense. If I return to Rio de Janeiro some day, I will only play for the club I love and that is Flamengo."

Adriano's agent earlier also ruled out a move to Fluminense, insisting he had not been in contact with the club.

"It's ridiculous," Gilmar Rinaldi said. "There has been no meeting with them (Fluminense).

"There's no chance he will return to Brazil."

Adriano spent six months on loan at Sao Paulo this year after suffering personal problems in Italy.

He returned to the Inter squad at the start of the season, but has been left out of Jose Mourinho's squad for the last five Serie A games after falling out with his coach, sparking fresh speculation over his future.
