Messi an Anzhi target, says Carlos

3 November 2011 16:24

Roberto Carlos has highlighted the boundless ambition of Anzhi Makhachkala after revealing Lionel Messi was a transfer target of the club.

Brazilian left-back Carlos moved to Anzhi from Corinthians at the start of 2011, part of an ambitious plan to make the Russian Premier League club a powerhouse in European football.

He was joined in the close-season by Samuel Eto'o, who signed from Inter in a deal reported to be worth 28 million euros.

Speaking on Thursday, 2002 World Cup winner Carlos revealed that club owner Suleyman Kerimov tried to sign Ballon d'Or winner Messi, as well as Santos starlet Neymar, in the recent transfer window.

"Kerimov put three big names on the table: Eto'o, Messi and Neymar," Carlos said.

"The Cameroonian (Eto'o) thought about it a lot and was the first to sign. Now I hope that the other two follow his example."

Anzhi are currently eighth in the Russian Premier League.
