Bayern, who have also been previously linked with Benfica's Fabio Coentrao and Bordeaux star Benoit Tremoulinas, have reportedly been tracking the Brazilian since before his move to the Nou Camp from Sevilla in 2006, and are now ready to make a move for the player.

But Adriano wants to remain in Spain and fight for his place, despite becoming a marginal figure under Pep Guardiola.

"FC Bayern have enquired about Adriano. But Adriano has a contract until 2014, wants to carry on with Barca," said his advisor Paulo Affonso.

Adriano can play left-back or on either wing, but remains in the Barcelona reserves.
