Cameroon attacker targets three-year stay at the Bridge under ‘Mou’. Veteran Anzhi Makhachkala front man Samuel Eto’o has decided to turn down the chance to re-join Inter Milan in favour of being reunited with former head coach Jose Mourinho at Chelsea this summer according to reports in The Times. The experienced Cameroon international has been made available by his big-spending Russian employers who are currently embarking on a massive fire sale of their highest-earning star players with Eto’o very much one of those. However it had been thought that the 32-year-old would reject the advances of the west London club in favour of returning to his former team Inter in Serie A where the striker spent two hugely successful years between 2009 and 2011. The Serie A giants were even offering Eto’o a more lucrative two-year deal as opposed to just the one-year contract on the table at Stamford Bridge on lesser terms. But Eto’o has instead opted for an emotional reunion with the self-styled ‘Special One’ with the pair having won the Uefa Champions League together during their time at San Siro in 2010.
