Fener Target Adriano Heading to Sao Paolo

Fener Target Adriano Heading to Sao Paolo
By Nathan L. Redd

Inter Milan star Adriano, rumored to be on Fenerbahce's wish list, is heading to his native Brazil for the rest of the season. Adriano will join Sao Paolo FC on loan from Inter Milan for six months.

Fenerbahce Worldwide correspondent Cristina Prado is in Sao Paolo and broke the news earlier this week (I've always wanted to say that.....and yes, we really do have a correspondent and she really is in Sao Paolo now :) ). Adriano will finish his contract with Sao Paolo - the contract ends on June 30, 2008. "I'm very happy with this deal," he told reporters. "Since my first day at the club, everyone has treated me very well. It will be an honor to win titles for this club. I'm going to work very hard for this and to return to the Brazil team."

It has been rumored for several months that Fenerbahce was one club in pursuit of the Brasilian star. Chelsea and West Ham United in England were also mentioned as potential destinations for the much-criticized star. Fenerbahce's Diego Lugano starred for Sao Paolo before joining the Sari Lacivert. Only time will tell if Adriano will do the same.
