Eto'o set to snub Manchester City
Monday 29 June 2009
Samuel Eto'o will turn down Manchester City's 'stratospheric' offer and stay with Barcelona, according to the striker's agent.
Sky Sports report that Eto'o is leaning towards a stay at the Nou Camp, despite reports of a £190,000-a-week offer from Mark Hughes' Manchester City side.
Eto'o's agent, Josep Maria Mesalles, told ONA FM, "If there is not a 180-degree turnaround then he will stay with Barcelona."
Should the Cameroon international choose to stay with the European Champions, it may pose some problems. Eto'o has one year remaining on his contract and will be able to leave for free next summer.
Barcelona may be eager to cash in now, with City reportedly offering £25m for the 28-year-old.
