Samuel Eto’o has revealed his admiration for Milan, amid speculation that Serie A club are lining up a bid for the Cameroon striker.

Reports in Italy suggest Milan could make an offer of up to €50million for Eto’o.

“Milan is a great team, a club that is known around the world, who have just won the Champions League,” he is quoted in Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I am proud to be considered a target by them but, for now, I am happy where I am.

“The amount of money is something for the club to think about. For me, the figures will never change my plans. As for Barcelona, I do not know.”

It is claimed that Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is set to travel to Barcelona to try and secure a deal for Eto’o in the coming days.
