Samuel Eto'o: Linked with moves to Inter Milan & Chelsea

Chelsea are thought to be rivalling Inter for Eto'o with the striker expected to leave Anzhi Makhachkala due to their financial problems.

Eto'o is a big fans' favourite at Inter after helping them win the treble in 2010 and Moratti is not ruling out a deal for the Cameroon international

"Eto'o? We'll see what happens next week," Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.

Inter coach Walter Mazzarri was remaining tight-lipped on the prospect of Eto'o returning to the club.

"Eto'o arrives? It's not my place to speak," noted Mazzarri. "I'm happy to coach the team I have right now and we'll see what the market says."

Meanwhile, Moratti has played down reports that Sunday's match with Genoa would be his last game as president of the club.

Indonenisian businessman Erick Thohir is poised to take control of Inter, but Moratti insists a takeover deal has not been agreed yet.

"I don't like saying that and I don't think so, anyway," added Moratti

"Yes, I am emotional, but the way I always am before an Inter match that starts the season. We haven't reached an agreement yet.

"If we do, then that's fine. If we don't, then nothing will be done. My desire is to do things properly, then we'll see if it's enough."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
