According to Milan general manager Ariedo Braida, the club would rather sign the Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o than his teammate Ronaldinho. With Barcelona expected to offload both players as part of a revamp under their new coach Pep Guardiola, Braida said the Cameroon international's characteristics would be more suitable for his team. "We need Ronnie less than Eto'o," he said. "Eto'o is a great player, but it won't be easy because I suspect we'll have to pay a lot of money." Barcelona would reportedly seek €40m (£31.8m) for the 27-year-old Eto'o. Ronaldinho, whose star has fallen this season amid doubts about his temperament, would probably command a lesser fee. Milan have offered £6.3m for the defender Gianluca Zambrotta but Barcelona want £9.5m.

However, his side has failed to win any silverware for the past two seasons and suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat by their arch-rivals Real Madrid on Wednesday night.
