Just under two months after shocking the soccer world and signing for Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, Samuel Eto'o is being linked with a return to Inter Milan — on loan.
Eto'o left the Italian giants in late August, but when the Russian Premier League season takes a break in January and February, meaning Eto'o could potentially return to Inter for a Serie A as well as Champions League fixtures.
Eto'o scored 37 goals in all competitions last year for Inter, and the club has found it hard to replace the Cameroonian as it finds itself enduring its worst start to the Serie A season in 28 years. Inter has taken just four points from five games thus far in the Serie A campaign.
If he were to return, he could be available for up to nine Serie A games and a Champions League tie.

"UNITED MONEY DETERMINES SUCCESS, NOT FERGIE" – BENITEZ
Former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez claims that Manchester United's modern success is largely due to its financial support, and not manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Benitez, a long-time rival of Ferguson, believes that Ferguson's ability to spend on players like Rooney and Ferdinand has propelled him to glory and was quick to say that he did not believe it had anything to do with Ferguson's ability as a manager.
Benitez launched an infamous "facts" rant aimed at Ferguson's influence on the Premier League fixture list as well as the club's match officials.
WARNOCK FOR ENGLAND?
Neil Warnock, boss of EPL new boys Queens Park Rangers, declared it "no problem" for him to do the England job.
The English National Team will be without a manager following the Euro 2012 campaign with current boss Fabio Capello set to step down following the tournament.
Despite Tottenham's Harry Redknapp looking like the current favorite for the position, Warnock asserted that "there's not a cat in hell's chance of them giving me the job because I've got a sense of humor."
Warnock went on to state that he didn't believe that Fabio Capello's style of play was desirable, claiming that it takes the current team 25 passes to get to the halfway line.
TEVEZ RESUMES LIFE AT CITY
After serving his two-week ban from Manchester City, troublesome striker Carlos Tevez has resumed training with the club.
After allegedly refusing to play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, the club took disciplinary action against the Argentine.
Tevez returned to the Carrington training complex just after 12:00pm in Manchester for what is believed to be a fitness session, as the rest of the squad had participated in the 11:00am training session.
Tevez's future is very much up in the air at the moment, but one thing is certain: he is not wanted by Roberto Mancini at Manchester City.
Think Eto'o would help out Inter Milan? Does Rafa have a case against Fergie? What do you think of his "facts" rant? Is Warnock right about England?
