Brazilian striker Adriano has dismissed Inter’s suggestion that he should go out on loan, instead demanding a permanent move away from the Italian champions if he is not going to be an automatic first team choice.
The 25-year-old was not included in Roberto Mancini’s squad for Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Udinese on the opening weekend of the season after falling behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Julio Cruz, David Suazo and Hernan Crespo in the Inter striking ranks.
“I don’t want to go on loan again. I already went once to Parma when it was right for my career. Now if I must really leave, I’ll go and that’s it,” Adriano told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“What I and my agent don’t understand is why they did not tell me immediately at the start of the summer that I had not re-entered their plans.”
Inter President Massimo Moratti said several Premiership clubs had expressed interest in a loan deal but that he would not be sold permanently.
“He has two choices in front of him. Do really well with us or do really well on loan and return to us as the formidable centre forward that we know,” he told Gazzetta.
