"Eto'o is an object of desire," admitted Galliani, "and someone (coach Carlo) Ancelotti likes a lot. (Barcelona president) Joan Laporta has no preference between Inter or Milan but has requested £40 million and I am worried about that.

"We also want to know what the player thinks ... The other names everyone already knows, they are the ones mentioned in Europe, the best: like Didier Drogba (Chelsea), Emmanuel Adebayor (Arsenal), Mario Gomez (Stuttgart), Karim Benzema (Lyon)."

Galliani added: "Ronaldinho? He is still on the list, among those mentioned."
