Samuel Eto’o claims Chelsea and Man Utd are both interested in him
Former Barcelona star Samuel Eto’o claims that Manchester United want to sign him.
Like all of Anzhi’s players, the Cameroon international finds himself on the transfer list at the Russian club.
He has already made it clear that he would love a reunion with Jose Mourinho, under whom he won the Champions League at Inter Milan in 2010.
The 32-year-old recently said: “I have played under a lot of great coaches – but there is no other character in the game like Jose.
“He is one of the best coaches in the world – and we had a lot of success together at Inter Milan. I would like to have the chance to play under him again – because it is never boring when Jose is around.”
The Blues have not yet made any effort to sign the veteran forward, although he claimed that they and Napoli were both keen to sign him.
Now sources close to the player are briefing that United are also interested, according to reports in the Daily Mirror. It’s not clear whether he is a genuine target for David Moyes’ side or whether it is merely a ploy to encourage an offer from Chelsea.
