Chelsea deny making bid for Barca's Eto'o

Chelsea have denied making a bid for Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o despite claims from the Cameroon international he has received offers from the Blues, Tottenham and Inter Milan.

The 27-year-old, who is currently in Scotland with Barcelona, told Corriere dello Sport yesterday he has received a 'few important offers. Which ones? Chelsea, Tottenham and Inter.'

But Chelsea sources, who are currently with the club in China as part of the Blues' pre-season tour, denied making an offer for Eto'o.

A club spokesman said: 'We deny making a bid or any offer for Eto'o.'

Eto'o's agent, Jose Maria Mesalles, also refused to rule out the possibility of the former Real Mallorca striker remaining at the Nou Camp despite speculation over his future.

After arriving in southern China yesterday ahead of tomorrow's pre-season opener against Chinese Super League outfit Guangzhou Pharmaceutical, chief executive Peter Kenyon also ruled out a move for AC Milan playmaker Kaka, while revealing discussions with Real Madrid over fellow Brazilian Robinho were ongoing.

Portugal duo Deco and Jose Boswinga have already arrived at Stamford Bridge this summer, while veteran French midfielder Claude Makelele and Dutch defender Khalid Boulahrouz departed for Paris St Germain and VfB Stuttgart respectively yesterday.
