Manchester United & Chelsea target offered Inter deal

Published 2 Comments

Inter Milan will attempt to hijack Manchester United and Chelsea's bid to sign Samuel Eto'o, reports the Daily Express.

Both Premier League clubs are thought to be keen on the Cameroonian striker after his club Anzhi  put him up for sale for just £5m.

The Russian club are desperately trying to slash their wage bill after the owner declared he no longer wants to fund his ambitious project.

Their midfielder Willian is in London to seal a £30m move to Tottenham and Eto'o is next for the exit door.

Reports in the Italian media say that despite United and Chelsea's continued interest, Inter are monitoring the situation.

They have offered their former player a two-year deal worth £2.1m. The offer is a snip of his current wage package and are struggling to convince the 32-year-old to accept.

Chelsea's top target remains Wayne Rooney with Jose Mourniho confirming he will continue his attempts to sign the England international.

Eto'o had declared his desire to link back up with Mourinho but the Portuguese has stayed quiet on the situation.

Speaking at a press conference, Mourinho said: "We have a plan B and a plan C! Don't ask me names, because it's difficult to speak about players from other clubs."

United maintain an interest in the striker as doubts remain over the future of their star striker Rooney.
