Agent Jose Alberti is convinced Adriano will join Roma this summer.

The former Inter Milan striker is available from Flamengo and keen to return to Europe.

“I am in Brazil at the moment, precisely in Copacabana,” said Alberti.

“I spoke with Adriano's relatives yesterday and they told me that they are 99 per cent certain that he will go to Roma.

“In the next few days he will go to Italy. At the moment he is a bit sad because of the World Cup, which he will miss, but also for the bad things which have been said about him.”

According to Brazilian reports, Roma would have to pay Flamengo compensation for the deal but Alberti denied that.

“There is no fee or release clause. Adriano's contract with Flamengo expires in June.

“He is free to do whatever he wants and at the moment he is training on his own.”
