Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has expressed his admiration for Internazionale’s Brazilian striker Adriano.

The Real chief confessed that Adriano’s performances for Inter have not gone unnoticed.

“Without meaning to insult any other player in the Italian league, I think one player stands out,” Perez told a radio station.

“Inter’s striker Adriano has attracted out attention more than anyone else.”

However, Inter are desperate to retain the services of a player already compared to Ronaldo.

“Perez is a big person in football and has the right to dream,” said Inter’s technical director Marco Branca.

“But Adriano won’t move. He’s Inter’s present and future.”
