Eto'o: No way I'll join Chelsea

Samuel Eto'o has warned Jose Mourinho against attempting to secure his signature.

Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o has warned Jose Mourinho against attempting to lure him to Stamford Bridge.

The prolific Cameroon hit-man has proven to be one of the world's top performers this season with a series of scintillating displays which have shot him to the top of Chelsea's wish-list.

Barca have already issued a hands-off warning but a reported bid in the region of £30 million had nevertheless been mooted by the West London big spenders.

Chelsea have already confirmed that they are in the market for a proven goalscorer but it would appear Mourinho's behaviour in the UEFA Champions League clash between the two clubs has not endeared him to Eto'o.

Revealingly, Eto'o also claims that Chelsea had an opportunity to bring him to the capital last summer but instead elected to turn their sights on Didier Drogba - with the Barca man not an admirer of his Ivory Coast counterpart either.

''I have no interest in signing for Chelsea because I am in the best club in the world,'' said Eto'o.

''They lost their opportunity to sign me a year ago and now they do not have any possibility.

''Never will I sign for a team trained by Mourinho. He wrecked things completely with his behaviour surrounding the two games between our sides.

''I insist Barca boss Frank Rijkaard is the better coach despite however many titles the Portuguese has won.

''Now my dream is to play Chelsea again because I have many things to resolve with them.

''I am a better player than Didier Drogba and Mourinho knows that, and I am going to score more goals than Henry.''
