Moratti coy on Eto'o return

The oil tycoon refused to be drawn on speculation linking the Cameroon international with the Nerazzurri, and says Sunday’s clash with Genoa will not be his last game at the helm

Inter president Massimo Moratti is remaining coy on the the prospect of Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto’o returning to San Siro this summer.

Reports emanating from England on Sunday suggested that the Cameroonian is set to be reuninted with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, whom the forward played under during his time at Appiano Gentile.

However, Moratti has hinted that Eto’o, who left Inter for Anzhi in 2011, could yet rejoin the Nerazzurri.

“Eto’o? We’ll see what happens next week,” the 68-year-old oil tycoon told Sky Sport Italia.

The 68-year-old went on to claim Sunday’s match with Genoa would not be his last game as president at San Siro, in light of reports that Indonenisian businessman Erick Thohir is set to take control of the club early next month.

“I don’t like saying that and I don’t think so, anyway,” the Nerazzurri supremo stated.

“Yes, I am emotional, but the way I always am before an Inter match that starts the season. We haven’t reached an agreement yet.

“If we do, then that’s fine. If we don’t, then nothing will be done. My desire is to do things properly, then we’ll see if it’s enough.”

Eto’o, whose current deal with Anzhi expires next summer, scored 53 times in 102 appearances for the Nerazzurri.
