Flamengo striker Adriano has confirmed he held talks with Roma about a winter market move last month.

The reborn Brazilian forward admits he is now considering a return to Italy later this year.

"Yes, I talked with them, but right now I'm thinking only of Flamengo and the World Cup. But after that, I'll return to Italy. Of course, Rome is a great city and a great team, I'd like to play with (Francesco) Totti," said Adriano.

Adriano also spoke of his experience with Inter Milan, denying any kind of disagreement with Jose Mourinho.

"When I see them play I guess I'm still there with them. I had no problems with Mourinho, he even helped me a lot, treated well and never poorly when he wanted to stimulate a reaction from me."
