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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
