Adriano Stays At Barca

Barcelona have managed to secure the services of their Brazilian international defender, Adriano Correia.

The 28-year-old, 17-cap Selecao star had been linked to a move to French champions Paris Saint Germain and new Ligue 1 upstarts, Monaco.

But Barca are already short on defenders, and were disinclined to losing versatile Adriano.

As a result they have decided to give Adriano, who moved to the Camp Nou from Sevilla for €9.5 million in 2010, a contract extension.

He will now play for the Spanish champions for at least another four seasons, and his buyout clause has been set at a prohibitive €90 million.

Adriano has seldom been a regular starter in Barca’s strongest starting XI, but he certainly adds strength in depth to a squad requiring serious defensive reinforcements.

Despite his relative lack of first-team action, Adriano’s stay up to this point at Barca has been impressively successful, and he already has two winner’s medals from two La Liga campaigns, one Champions League and one Copa del Rey in his personal trophy cabinet.
