'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Watch Samuel Eto'o In Action Coz He's Coming


Barcelona v Chelsea: Champions League semi-final - Tuesday 28 April 2009. Samuel Eto'o, the worlds finest striker will be showing us just how good he really is in tonight fascinating encounter at the Nou Camp.

What the papers are saying

'Barcelona were in talks on Monday with Manchester City over the sale of striker Samuel Eto'o for a fee of at least 40 million, smashing the British transfer record.'

If you believe everything you read, Barca president Joan Laporta has already flown into London to hold talks with City chief executive Garry Cook. Can this be true?

The 28-year-old Cameroonian's contract runs out in 12-months time, therefore Barcelona have a couple of options.

* Persuade the greatest African footballer in history to sign a contract extension.
* Let him leave the Nou Camp at the end of next season for nothing.
* Sell him to the highest bidder.

In January 2009 the Manchester City's owners, Abu Dhabi United Group were prepared to splash out 100 million on Kaka so a mere 40m and 150,000 a week on Eto'o salary is just a mere splash in the ocean.

MCFC deny any approach

Manchester City FC has reportedly said that the club have made no approach and no offer has been made. Well, they would say that wouldn't they.

This summers transfer window expecting to be one of the biggest and best ever seen in the history of football and we at Vital Manchester will be here to bring you the very latest news, as it happens.

If he comes it'll be against his footballing will. Champions league regular playing in front of 90,000, or the carling cup in front of 40,000? In a short career who would really want to sit in limbo for 3 years waiting for a masterplan to be achieved?
