Atletico Madrid are being linked with Inter Milan striker Adriano.

Adriano's future at Inter is hanging by a thread after another blow-up with coach Jose Mourinho this week.

However, it's emerged Inter directors are reluctant to offload Adriano in January and would prefer to wait until the summer market before selling the Brazil international.

Inter are keen to use Adriano as a makeweight in a bid for Atletico star Sergio Aguero at the end of this season.
