Samuel Eto'o confirms he turned down an €80m move to Russia, but leaves the Manchester City door open. “I want to win the Champions League.”
The Inter striker was reportedly the subject of a world transfer record-breaking fee from Russian side Anzhi this summer.
“I turned it down because the Russians aren't playing in the Champions League and my objective is to win that trophy again,” said the Cameroon international.
However, that doesn't rule out a transfer to Manchester City, who have made their interest in Eto'o very clear.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, this weekend will see intensive negotiations for an exchange between Eto'o and Carlos Tevez.
Inter will face Manchester City in the Dublin Super Cup on Sunday afternoon, kick-off at 16.30 UK time, so both clubs are already in the same hotel and President Massimo Moratti is flying in today.
Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri will take on Celtic in Dublin this afternoon, but Eto'o is expected to be on the bench.
Goran Pandev and Luc Castaignos should flank centre-forward Giampaolo Pazzini in a 3-4-3 system.
