Eto'o Hints At Chelsea Desire

Samuel Eto’o is arguably the greatest African footballer of all-time, after his stellar feats for Barcelona, Inter Milan and Cameroon.

Click here to remember what made Eto'o a legend!

But the 32-year-old striker practically disappeared off the radar when he followed a trail of oil money to backwater Russian club, Anzhi Makhachkala in 2011.

Eto’o could be about to prove he is still show time however, as the oil well dries up at Anzhi.

The club has finally realised that paying players upwards of £300 000 per week is unsustainable, and is embarking on an unceremonious process of asset stripping.

Eto’o is being hawked to clubs across the globe, and he has hinted that his future could lie in the English Premier League.

He will have to accept a major salary reduction wherever he goes, but let’s face it- Eto’o is a canny businessman, and has probably saved a fortune as a gun for hire in Russia.

And now he seems interested in finishing his career on a high, playing for Jose Mourinho again.

Eto’o and Mou vacuumed trophies hungrily together while at Inter Milan, and the African icon has now admitted that the thought of reuniting with The Special One appeals to him.

“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 said in the Daily Mail.

“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.

“Of course Chelsea are a great team - and when we have all the offers on the table then I will discuss with my agent and see what my next step is.”

Chelsea are in the market for a new striker, but their pursuit of Wayne Rooney seems destined to end with yet another slap in the face from stubborn Manchester United.

And the Blues could do far worse than take a punt on perhaps the greatest African striker of all, Samuel Eto’o.

Do you think Eto’o still has what it takes to light up the English Premier League? Tell us below.
