Former Inter striker Adriano look set for a return to Italy as he closes in on a move to Roma.

The Brazil international suffered a number of personal problems and injuries that saw him return home to Brazil, where he played for Flamengo.

The 28-year-old free agent is now expected to return to Serie A, with Roma close to securing a deal.

“There is no place like Italy where I can truly prove that I have recovered,” Adriano told Corriere dello Sport.

“I thought about it long and hard and I’m happy to return to Italy. I want to cancel out what I did in Italy.

“I don’t want to repeat the same things that happened before (at Inter). I owe it to Italy.

“More than money, my reasons for going to Roma is pride. I return to pay the debt I have with that country, that has always treated me very well and that I left on bad terms.”

Adriano terminated his contract with Inter in April 2009 following a turbulent time at the club.

“I leave Flamengo on amicable terms,” he said.

“I have been impressed by Roma’s project, a club that for six months have been keen on acquiring my services.

“I am a Roma player 90 per cent.

“I will talk to (Roma president) Rosella Sensi on June 6 to complete my transfer.

“I will come to Italy with my family and my son. I know I will have more responsibility and I am ready.

“I believe I can contribute to making Roma a great team which it has always been.”
