ADRIANO's agent believes Inter Milan fans have seen the last of the Brazil international.

The striker recently played for his country in a World Cup qualifier and announced shortly after the game that he was taking a leave of absence and not rejoining the three-time defending champions and Serie A leaders Inter for the final stretch of the campaign.

Inter are reportedly set to terminate the 27-year-old's contract, which runs until June 2010.

“I don't think Adriano will return again to Italy,” said Gilmar Rinaldi, Adriano's agent, who met with Inter executives last week and is now back in Brazil.
