Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o admits Barcelona never made an effort to convince him to stay this summer.

"I was waiting for them to explain why they wanted me to leave, but that conversation never happened," he told French television Tf1.

"I never got an answer and now I no longer expect one. The matter is closed, as far as I am concerned.

"I spoke to Mourinho two or three times on the phone and after that it was easy to choose Inter. The decision was simple."
