The Brazilian can renew until 2017 or be free this summer
Next March 15 the period for Adriano to decide whether he renews his contract finishes. He has to decide to extend it until 2017 or end up free on summer.
The Brazilian full-back is having a testimonial role this season. He is the 18th most used player and only Sandro, Douglas, Arda, Aleix and Masip have played less than him. He has participated in 18 matches and has been starter in 10 of them. He has scored one goal in the 6-1 vs Roma.
Despite this secondary role, Adriano have many chances to execute the renewal option, according to the newspaper Sport. In one hand, it's difficult to find a team able to keep the player's salary. Aged 31, he won't be in soccer much longer and it's difficult that a club want to have him. Furthermore, the full-back is happy in Barcelona and have a good relationship with his mates, especially with the Brazilian ones.
Despite Adriano renews until 2017, Barça could also transfer him in the winter market, but they should have to find a team interested in him.
