This comes from the most unreliable and untrustworthy source, The News of the World. I do not know if I even should take this serious on a Sunday morning, to me it seems like the perfect Sunday morning transfer talk rumour, but NOTW says that SAF is preparing a £25m bid for Cameroun striker Samuel Eto’o. What makes this rumour more unbelievable even is the mentioned £150k/week which would make the Barcelona striker the best player at ManUtd from his first day and be more then the £130k/week CR7 earned.
Eto’o has been mentioned in rumours in the past and he certainly would be a welcome addition to our (to any) squad, funnier even would be to snatch him from under the megamillions from Eastland, but with many titles and Champions League football that obviously isn’t too hard if the other town club only a blue carpet on offer has in the trophy room. Still I do not see it happen and will classify this as a typical ‘NOTW Sunday morning sensation entry’. If there’s any truth about this news, I will obviously welcome Samuel Eto’o with the biggest passion! ;)
