Chelsea and Manchester United will both get the chance to talk with transfer target Samuel Eto'o this week, the Express reports.
Speculation over the striker's future has been rife since current club Anzhi placed him on the transfer list earlier this month, in order to cut their expenditure.
The Cameroon international's earmarked price stands at around £5million, a valuation unlikely to put either David Moyes or Jose Mourinho of.
And reports now state that the United and Chelsea are set to go head to head for the services of Eto'o, with crunch talks to be held this week in an attempt to lure him to the Premier League.
Eto'o is said to be interested in a move to England, particularly one that would see him link back up with former Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, but his wage demands may prove to be a stumbling block to any potential suitors.
Earlier this week reports surfaced suggesting the 32-year-old would not move to either United or Chelsea unless they were willing to pay him in excess of £300,000-a-week.
Any immediate move looks unlikely, with Chelsea focusing their efforts on their pursuit of Wayne Rooney and Manchester United keen on bringing in Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines from Everton.
