Milan:Adriano does not want to be loaned out by Inter Milan, preferring instead to either remain with the club or move to another team on a full transfer.
"I've been speaking at length with the player lately and we've decided calmly that a loan is not a solution we accept," Adriano's agent, Gilmar Rinaldi, was quoted as saying by the ANSA news agency Monday. "Adriano wants to remain at Inter or have his full rights transferred."
Over the weekend, Inter president Massimo Moratti and coach Roberto Mancini indicated that Adriano could be loaned out.
The Brazil striker struggled last season, scoring only five goals in the Serie A, and Inter has three other top quality forwards - Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Hernan Crespo and David Suazo.
Adriano was left off Inter's roster for its 1-1 draw with Udinese on Sunday. He also didn't make the squad for the Italian supercup loss to AS Roma a week earlier.
"I spoke with (Inter technical director Marco) Branca and I was surprised that the club wanted to loan Adriano out," Rinaldi said. "He remains at complete disposal for the club. It will be difficult to find a team in a week, but we're calm, and everything could always be brought up again in January."
The current transfer period ends on Friday and the next one is in January.
