Former Atalanta striker Christian Vieri is heading for an adventure in Brazil, according to one of his agents.

The hitman rescinded his contract with the Bergamaschi earlier this month and reports have linked him with a move across the Atlantic. Sky Sport Italia connected Vieri with a move to Corinthians to reunite with former Inter striking partner Ronaldo.

Although there has not been any official confirmation from the club or player, his agent admits that he will join a top Brazilian side soon.

"There is a 90 percent chance of seeing Vieri play in Brazil," Franck Assuncao told Brazilian sports daily Lance! "He wants to play there and he is delighted with the chance."

Playing in Brazil will mean the striker will have to accept less than 200,000 reals per month ($90,500), according to reports in Brazil.
