Chelsea transfer swoop for Samuel Eto'o gets thumbs-up from the for-sale Anzhi striker
Russians are willing to part with any and all players and a reunion with former Inter boss Mourinho sounds good to star.
Special one: Eto'o wants to play under Mourinho again
Samuel Eto'o has issued a come-and-get-me plea to Jose Mourinho at Chelsea after being made available for transfer by Anzhi Makhachkala.
Striker Eto'o, a three-time European Cup winner who last lifted the trophy two years ago under Mourinho at Inter Milan, wants to work with the Special One again.
It is believed the Blues could move for the 32-year-old if they ultimately fail with their repeated attempts to buy Wayne Rooney from Manchester United.
Eto’o, who has been offered to a number of clubs as Anzhi bid to slash their wage bill, said: “There is only one Jose Mourinho.
“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 Cameroon legend, among the world’s highest paid players at Anzhi, added: “Chelsea are a great team. When we have all the offers on the table then I will discuss with my agent and see what my next step is.”
Anzhi have put their entire squad up for sale after a poor start to the season.
