Eto'o is out of contract at Stamford Bridge after a season-long stint following his move from Anzhi Makhachkala and looks to have signalled his departure with some disparaging remarks in recent weeks.

The 33-year-old was angered by Mourinho's comments earlier in the season when he appeared to question his official age and has now described the Portuguese as a 'puppet' after previously branding him a 'fool'.

"Contrary to what a puppet says about my age, I am still physically fit," he told the Confederation of African Football's official website.

"At 33, I feel real good. I have proven that I could do better than youths."

Eto'o scored 12 times last season as Chelsea finished third in the Premier League and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

He is currently preparing for the upcoming World Cup and is confident he can still play for a top European team next season.

"I wish to also say that I am not going to the United States or to the Middle East," he said.

"I will continue at the top level. I will continue to play the Champions League.

"My romance with this competition is far from over. I will not tell you where, but I will be at the top level. I am 33 and I have two World Cups to play.

"Before me there are other players who went on until the age of 41. So I can continue."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
