Manchester City prepared to wait for Eto'o
Mark Hughes has confirmed Manchester City are still interested in bringing Samuel Eto'o to the club.
It was confirmed yesterday that Eto'o would prefer to remain with Barcelona amid a wrangle over a £25m fee that would be paid by City to sign the Cameroon star.
However, Hughes has not given up hope of getting his man.
"We have made an offer but there appears to be a situation between the player and his club that we cannot be part of," said the Blues chief.
"We just have to sit back and see what develops. Patience is a word that has been mentioned and we may need some of it."
Hughes also confirmed City are interested in signing Carlos Tevez, who has left rivals Manchester United.
Yet it does not appear the Argentina star is an imminent arrival.
"I am a huge admirer of Carlos," he said.
"Everyone is aware of his situation and we are interested, as we are in all top quality players.
"We will have to see what happens but these are very early days."
