Ronaldinho has signed with AC Milan while Deco with Chelsea.

Eto'o told a news conference in Tashkent that several clubs was chasing his signature and Kuruvchi was one of them.

He also admitted there was an interest in him of Kuruvchi, and that was the reason for his travel to the Uzbek capital.

The current Uzbek championship leaders Kuruvchi have reportedly offered $40 million to tempt the three-time African Player of the Year.

Kuruvchi coach Mirjalol Kasymov, who formerly known as 'David Beckham of Uzbekistan', told the club's official website that they have made a very good offer and are quite serious of getting Eto'o to play there. He believed the hitman will help his side in the Asian Champions League.

Kuruvchi will face Iran's Saipa in the Asian Champions League quarter-finals in September.
