Samuel Eto'o's agent says Jose Mourinho only has eyes for Wayne Rooney after the Cameroon star was turned down by Chelsea.
Eto'o now looks set to rejoin his former club Inter Milan, where he previously worked under Mourinho, after Chelsea's lukewarm response to his availability for transfer from Anzhi Makhachkala.
The Cameroon international is back on the market after Anzhi decided to sell their top stars when their main investor pulled out.
He has been heavily linked with Chelsea and a reunion with Mourinho, but his representative explained the problems.
"Chelsea have a clear club policy of not signing players over 30," Claudio Vigorelli told Il Giornale.
"I spoke to Jose, who was willing to give Samuel a one-year contract, but Chelsea are waiting for Wayne Rooney. Mourinho only has him in mind and is waiting for the situation with Manchester United to find a breakthrough."
