FORMER Brazil forward Adriano checked into a luxury hotel after selling his mansion – leaving everything behind but his medals.
He lived in the presidential suite of luxury hotel Grand Hyatt in the upscale neighbourhood of Barra da Tijuca in the city of Rio de Janeiro for some time.
According to A Tribuna, the ex-Inter Milan forward paid £10,000 every month in rent after selling his mansion for £1.2million.
Local media say Adriano left nearly all his belongings behind for the new owners and took with him only a number of sentimental items which included awards from his playing days.
The 41-year-old won four Serie A titles with Inter and two Campeonato Brasileiro trophies, won at Flamengo and Corinthians.
But Adriano, who last played professionally for Miami United in 2016, has had a turbulent number of years both on and off the pitch.
