Report: Samuel Eto’o agrees Anzhi exit and says goodbye

Samuel Eto'o Chelsea transfer rumours 2013

Back in 2005, José Mourinho and Chelsea came extremely close to signing an England star only to see the move fall through because he decided to stay at his club. The player was Steven Gerrard and Liverpool kept him in the end. It looks like Chelsea and Mourinho could be set for another disappointment with regard to an England star.

This time it is Wayne Rooney. Due to Manchester United’s hardline stance, getting the player to submit an official transfer request was probably the trump card for Mourinho. It now appears that Rooney will not ask for a transfer.

No matter because Mourinho has already stated that the club had a ‘plan B’ in case they fail to sign Rooney. Samuel Eto’o is believed to be on the top of the list.

“We have plans B and C. Don’t ask me names. It’s difficult to speak about players from other clubs.” – Mourinho, a few days ago.

If you’d go as far as trusting one of the most popular Russian newspapers, Samuel Eto’o has agreed to leave Anzhi Makhachkala. According to Izvestia, the player has already said his goodbyes to his teammates at the Russian club after agreeing to terminate his contract.

Google translate may not be perfect, but it gets the job done.

“Cameroonian star this morning after a workout goodbye to teammates and club staff and wished “Anji” good luck.

“Footballer go for talks with representatives of the London “Chelsea” and Milan “Inter” to decide which of the two teams, he will continue his career.” – Izvestia report.

Eto’o may be 32 years old, but he remains an outstanding player. So, it is not surprising to see Chelsea having competition for his signature. Inter Milan are reportedly looking to re-sign the former star.

“Eto’o arrives? It’s not my place to speak. I’m happy to coach the team I have right now and we’ll see what the market says.” – Walter Mazzarri to Goal.

Was Eto’o saying goodbyes ahead of his move to Chelsea or Inter Milan? He may have had a successful time at Inter, but his relationship with Mourinho could help seal the deal for Chelsea.
