60/40 Chance Samuel Eto'o Will Become A Blue

60/40 Chance Samuel Eto'o Will Become A Blue


One of the world's finest strikers, Samuel Eto'o will more than likely leave Barcelona in the summer, but where will he end up?

Eto'o has suggested he would be open to the idea of playing in the Premier League, amid reports that he does not see eye to eye with Barca coach Pep Guardiola. Moreover, with only one year left on his contract the 28-year-old's options are vast.

What we do know is that the Cameroonian has snubbed Barcelona's efforts to open talks about extending his deal, and with that in mind, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and of course Manchester City must have a realistic chance of bringing another world class star to England.

Of course, we don't actually know if City has made any official enquiries, nevertheless, rest assured I bet someone behind the Eastlands scene have being doing their homework.

Possibility

If City were prepared to pull out all the stops in January's Kaka affair, what is the possibility of Eto'o becoming a Blue sometime in the summer. My guess is 60/40.

Watch with awe while enjoying the background music.

Certainly no doubting Eto'o's class (two apostrophes, one name - now that's just greedy), but two thoughts spring to mind. Firstly, how well will he adapt to the English game? Secondly, he's reported to have a bit of an ego on him (understatement), so would he regard coming to City as a step down? Would certainly give him a very warm welcome if he did join us!
