Interesting transfer news are coming out from Spain and it has been reported that Barcelona president Joan Laporta wants Samuel Eto’o to ignore Manchester City’s billions and stay at the Nou Camp for life.
It has been widely reported that the Cameroon striker is on Mark Hughes’ targets list as the City boss looks to spend his massive transfer war chest.
It has also been reported that Eto’o is also on the radar of a host of top European clubs but Laporta claims that Barcelona can persuade Eto’o to stay in Spain.
Laporta also said that Eto’o is the best striker in the world, highly valued in the market and it would be nice if he could finish his career at Barcelona.
Laporta also admitted that Eto’s contract will end next season and that requires both parties to sit and talk. Laporta also added that the club wants Eto’o to continue for many more years, always in line with Barca’s wage structure.
