Eto'o Takes A Break In Paris To Await Developments



Barcelona hitman Samuel Eto'o is resting for a couple of days in the city of light after playing a tribute game in The Reunion Islands...

Sport.es confirms that the brilliant striker will be monitoring developments between Manchester City and Barcelona.

Eto'o was in the Reunion Islands over the weekend to take part in a star studded tribute to former Celtic star Didier Agathe.

Makes sense. If I was him, I'd stick around after the return flight to Paris. Much quicker to jet across to Manchester from there. We are watching CDG Terminal 1....

News as it happens and straight from the horses mouth (awesome). I wonder how many news outlets have reporters inside a French air terminal? Not many I suspect. Great stuff JB.

adn.es is reporting alongside other newswires that Barca are putting pressure on Eto'o to join City in order to strengthen their pursuit of David Villa.....

His wife lives in Paris! What sort of man would be happy with his wife in a completely different country to where he lives and plays? There are reports in Spain saying the hold up is purely his insistance that Barcelona pay him 15M euro from the transfer fee to stop him joining us (or another team) on a free next season. He has a charity game in Vancouver on the 3rd so I suppose the 2nd is the cut-off point for negotiations (or it should be) as we shouldn't let it drag on. I predict a drama.

I can think of many blokes who would like to be playing away in a different country to their wife, City Girl. Seriously, though, Eto'o is a French speaking chap from Cameroon. He is also incredibly rich. So where better to feather a love nest than romantic Paris? I hear tell when they wake with le Coq Sportif each Paris morning you can catch the tantalising whiff of Johnny Baguette's croissants on the breeze... Let's hope Samuel and Mrs Eto'o are dreaming of a Blue Heaven tonight.

His agent seems to not be so convinced. But then again all agents are liars.

ajlaninazih- its a bit much to say you hate someone, i do sympathise and agree that he is being extremely greedy IF you believe the papers, at 28 onyl 3 good years left in him and even if he does run down his contract at barca, is anyone gonna pay him then what we are willing to pay him now? i dont thinnk so - although he could demand a large signing-on free when a free agent. i would personally say that if he not signed by 3rd july then shelve the deal and go for next target, ibrahimovic, would even say young Bojan at barca, looks pretty s##t hot to me, young, not so prolific yet but definately next year or so

Confusion reigns alright, we dont know if Eto'o is staying, why have barca issued another contract ofer after having apparently accepted city's offer and then why is the lad being greedy and asking for half the transfer fee. The mind boggles sometimes.
