Agent predicts Eto'o Ibrahimovic swap to go through
Thursday 23 July 2009
Samuel Eto'o's agent is confident the Barcelona striker will wrap up his move to Inter Milan sooner rather than later.
Inter are negotiating with Eto'o and his agent with a view to bringing him to the San Siro in a swap deal which would see Zlatan Ibrahimovic move the opposite way. The Serie A club will also receive 45 million euros and Alexander Hleb on a season-long loan.
And Josep Maria Mesalles believes the deal could be finalised by the end of the day.
"We still have to work a lot," he told reporters. "But I am optimistic, the agreement is close.
"Eto'o wants to come to Inter and he is very happy to come to Inter. We have taken a lot of steps forward."
