Well this source suggests that this oft-mentioned transfer target has no intention of making a move to the Premier League!
Samuel Eto’s the Barcelona striker who is currently in great form for the club has put an end to speculation linking him with either Man City or Tottenham by confirming he will stay at Barcelona until at least 2010.
Even then he has no intention of coming to the Premiership, he intends to play one season in France and one final season for Mallorca as he feels he owes them that.
Eto’o has also stated his desire to play for Marseille in France for at least one season, and therefore based on his own comments any speculation linking him to the premiership can be put to an end though not sure it will do.
Looks like Man City and Spurs will need to look elsewhere. (footylatest.com)
Will this be the last word on the subject? Probably not! The way this has been reported, you would think the Cameroonian was nearing the end of his career, but he is only 27. Presumably, even if he had a season in France and back at Mallorca, there are a good few in between which may or may not be at the Camp Nou. Will the fantastic finisher come to England?
Well, every season that passes make it less likely I guess, but I wouldn’t bet against it just yet. Do Discuss the latest transfer gossip at the Brand New COS forum!“>Spurs fans think there is any chance that they could snare Samuel? Do they need him?
