it is VERY LIKELY that either one will come despite that strikers are not our first priority...but if moratti/mourinho wants one, then bring one in...but the question is which one we should go after...and which one will fit in mourinho's lineup...there is no doubt that mourinho will ask for drogba...but i have a feeling that moratti probably wants eto'o more...

if i have to pick, i'd say eto'o because he is 3 years younger...and also, drogba seems getting hot very easy...probably not a good thing when guys like matrix, vieira, and ibra are here...on the other hand, eto'o seems having some injury issues...so...

Eto'o was a very good player. Exploded into the very best, when he joined barca... he did very well there.

Now he's on a slide, probably without Ronaldinho doing all the assists and ball holding. They both worked very well together. Can Eto'o play in Mourinho's lone attacker that is required to track back................................... i think not.

if that's up to mourinho, he will no doubt sign drogba...but why moratti went to barca and try to get eto'o when he knew drogba was mourinho's choice?

Nobody knows who mourinho's choice is. Maybe he prefers Eto.

Anyway either one is good with me.

i really don't know what is mourinho's plan...rumors say that he wants to bring in deco, lampard, drogba...which i believe because it's been reported many times...i don't believe that we can get carvalho or essien...

eto'o, to me, is moratti's type of signing...

i would rather have Eto, but i rather we don't get any more strikers.
i want to see balotelli playing more
me 2...but i m not sure if balotelli is ready to play as a starter in every game...the kid is not even 18....if we play him as a starter in every game, will that give him too much pressure? but he is talented and special...hopefully, he could be as good as benzema in the near future...

Eto'o ha scelto l'Inter

11:00 del 29 maggio

Nella prossima stagione Samuel Eto'o giocherà nell'Inter. L'attaccante camerunense lo avrebbe confidato al proprio entourage. Dopo essere stato messo sul mercato dal Barcellona insieme a Deco e Ronaldinho ed aver rifiutato le offerte di Tottenham e Fenerbahce, il giocatore ha scelto di accettare il trasferimento in Italia alla corte di Mourinho nonostante la corte del Milan. A questo punto manca solo l'accordo con il Barça, che chiede 40 milioni di euro.

Con Eto'o verrebbe meno la candidatura di Didier Drogba, che la stampa inglese associa all'Inter insieme a Frank Lampard e Ricardo Carvalho. A questo punto il Milan potrebbe rituffarsi sull'attaccante ivoriano del Chelsea.

====================

it sounds like eto'o chooses us...and he is now likely to join us than drogba...but barca ask for 40m euros which is ridiculous...if we get eto'o, then milan will have to go for drogba instead...

Drogba on a 3-year deal and at a max €10m transfer fee. Then fine.

Wildly unrealistic, though. He'll proly go for €25m and get a "Vieira" deal :wallbang: NO THANX.

I'm very unsure about Eto'o. Will he ever be anywhere near as good as he was pre the knee injury?

If not then we might aswell do with Adri and Balotelli.

Don't worry...now that Mourinho is in town he'll shape up the two Milan fashion clowns at the head of our operations

The Chelsea boyz did their own shit at the top...over here Mourinho would have demanded full operational power down to the underwear that the ticket booth attendants wear

There was a point in time when Jose had serious interest in Eto'o while still in Chelsea; so I'm pretty certain he likes both players. Either one we get I'd be happy; especially if Suazo and Crespo are shipped off.

I'd honestly prefer Drogba

I think he's an incredible player

not technically , or in terms of ball skills ... but the sheer number of balls he can win in the air, control and release ... he's a massive asset to any team just through his strenght .. people often underestimate the physical nature of the sport, and there is none more physical that Drogba

Eto'o is in the worst form of his recent career at the moment and he's something of a gamble

None for my taste, but Drogba is the best CF in the world in his day. However, I'd like to see Adriano brought back and Super Mario continued growth. Midfield is the problem.

Er, but in Mourinho I trust, of course. Whatever he wants, no? :D

Drogba would be better then Eto'o in Serie A.

If Jose could get it to work, Zlatan + Drogba would be an unmarkable combination up front.

Opposing defenders would have sleepless nights.

Personally I'd say Eto'o even though my opinion counts for little I know hehe,but Sammy is that bit younger and the point of will he struggle for e.g not being served by someone like a Dinho?.Still you're pretty spoilt for choice,Balotelli was outstanding and he's not even 18 yet:eek:not to forget Adriano and even the ever impressing Acquafresca.
