Inter’s Brazilian striker Adriano has extended his contract with the Serie A club for two years until 2010.

“I have signed until 2010 … I will be old with white hair,” he joked on the club’s official TV station.

He said it was a “life choice” to prolong his stay in Milan.

Adriano joined Inter from Brazilian club Flamengo in 2001 and scored on his debut in a friendly against Real Madrid but went on to spend three seasons on loan at Fiorentina and Parma before returning to Inter in 2004.
