"We had offers for several of our star players," stated Laporta, "with Samuel Eto'o being the one to attract the most.

"Milan told us the one that interested them most was Eto'o, but we said we wouldn't sell."

Asked about Ronaldinho's situation, who is wanted by Chelsea and Milan, Laporta added: "Who wouldn't want him? But Milan have never made a firm offer. In any case, we will not sell."
