Adriano has declared he is determined to put his off-field problems behind him this season after admitting trouble with booze. Moratti told Tuttosport: "Adriano has the will to succeed, but it remains to be seen if he can beat his mental obstacles."

The Inter supremo also revealed: "I wanted to sign [Juventus goalkeeper] Gianluigi Buffon. [Pavel] Nedved? It's better to leave that question unanswered."

Asked about interest in Real Madrid midfielder Emerson, Moratti added: "If we have problems in central midfield, [Cristian] Chivu can play there."
