This Barca ace has revealed that two London clubs have made offers for his services, but will Spurs manage to seal the deal?
Barcelona striker Samuel Eto’o claims Tottenham and Chelsea have both lodged formal interest in signing him.
The Cameroon international looks destined to leave Catalunya this summer with new Barca boss Josep Guardiola making it plain that he does not feature in his plans for next season.
While his exit has long looked to be inevitable, Thursday’s news that he was giving serious consideration to a move to Uzbekistani side Kuruvchi came as somewhat more of a surprise.
However, the Tashkent outfit’s hopes of pulling off the coup to end all coups look likely to be dashed following the revelation of more serious courters.
“I have offers from Inter, Tottenham and Chelsea,” said Eto’o. (Setanta Sports)
£24m rated striker must have forgotten all about the comments he made some weeks ago about Tottenham not being good enough for him! Clearly he has had to re-think his exit strategy as it appears no one has made a serious cash offer to his Catalan employers. I am sure the north London club would forgive the Cameroonian striker if he chose to consider a move to join Juande Ramos’s revolution.
After all the club is clearly moving in the right direction and talk of a top four finish is by no means mere fiction. All you have to do is see just how far the Spaniard took Sevilla, a club who hadn’t won a significant trophy for 50+ years but then managed to win back to back UEFA Cup’s and come within 90 minutes of winning the La Liga title! Can Spurs fans forgive Eto’o for his somewhat tactless comments?
It’d certainly make fans forget that the BerbaKeane saga has gotten so ridiculous that it’s being made into comic strips.
