The star forward has been put on the transfer list along with his Anzhi teammates, leading to speculation of a move to the Premier League.
Despite Napoli’s interest in signing him, it seems Eto’o has set his heart on a move to Chelsea, and is desperate for Mourinho to sign him this summer.
“There is only one Jose Mourinho. I have played under a lot of great coaches – but there is no other character in the game like Jose,” Eto’o said.
“He is one of the best coaches in the world – and we had a lot of success together at Inter Milan. I would like to have the chance to play under him again – because it is never boring when Jose is around.
“Of course Chelsea are a great team – and when we have all the offers on the table then I will discuss with my agent and see what my next step is.”
The Cameroon forward, who has won three Champions League titles, has already scored twice in his first four league matches of the new season. After nine goals in the Europa League last season, Eto’o has shown his former boss he can still score goals.
Meanwhile Mourinho will be focusing on Chelsea’s first game of the new season against Hull on Sunday.
Should Chelsea sign Eto’o? Could he cut it in the Premier League at 32-years-old?
