Samuel Eto'o

Our source has been tight lipped since we published the original story; however, this is the very latest.

'Eto'o representatives, Barcelona and City officials are thought to be at loggerheads reference his personal terms, plus, the 27-year-olds current contract is thought to be another major obstacle with a buyout clause being a major concern.'

'The Cameroonian international footballer is keen on playing in the English Premier League and Manchester City is believed to be high on his agenda, nevertheless Mark Hughes will not be held to ransom and will not pay an inflated price for anyone.'

'It is highly unlikely any deal will be made during the January transfer window, with the summer being more of a realistic target.'

Eto'o? Wow, dream on! Barca will fleece you folks, given the type of form he's been in. And use that money to buy David Villa!

27?? I thought he was older than that, he seems to have been around for donkeys. He would be a great signing though, african nations players do tend to travel well. Just think....Robinho and Eto'o in the same team! We'd be looking at 12th or even 11th in the table then!!

Eto'o would be a massive signing for us. We are already scoring for fun from midfield positions. If we add a goal machine like this guy to our formation we'll be capable of far more. Just think -- it already takes teams three men to mark Robinho! I'd be over the blue moon if Hughes and Cook can pull this one off.

C'mon now. Stop believing this sillyness. Eto'o won't come. Kaka wouldn't come if you gave him the deed to the club. Realistic targets are the bench players of top teams, and you will overpay for them.
