It’s reported that Adriano wants to quit Barcelona for Roma and has already reached a verbal agreement with the Italians.
Mundo Deportivo say the defender’s agent is in Catalonia to tie up his exit from Camp Nou as Adriano has come to the belief that his playing time will be severely limited next season if he stays put.
There are Dani Alves and Douglas for the right-back spot, and that’s before Aleix Vidal is registered in January, and Jordi Alba and Jeremy Mathieu on the left.
Roma don’t want to pay any more than €8m for Adriano, who has two years remaining on his contract, but Barca are reluctant to let him go while they’re under a transfer embargo, MD add.
Should Adriano get his wish, Luis Enrique could include young left-back Alex Grimaldo among the first team.
