Adriano rules out move to Chelsea
Adriano wants to spend one more year with Inter
Inter Milan striker Adriano has insisted he has no interest in signing for Chelsea despite being linked with a move to the Premiership champions.

The Brazil international, who scored 16 goals in Serie A last season, had been tipped for a 60m move to England.

"Throughout the season Chelsea have been there with a multi-million pound offer but appear to have become more determined," he told Jornal do Brazil.

"I'm happy to know that but am happy in Milan where I'm treated like a king."

Adriano joined Inter Milan from Italian rivals Parma in 2003 and has pledged to stay at the club for at least one more season.

"I hope to complete one more year there at least and I don't think about leaving," he said.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has admitted a striker is one of his summer transfer priorities.

"Three are leaving, three are coming in," Mourinho told Portuguese newspaper A Bola.

"We're going to bring in a left-back, a midfielder and a centre-forward."
