Barcelona does an about turn, offers Eto'o new three-year deal

Posted By: Staff

London, July 1 (ANI): The Samuel Eto'o transfer saga descended into farce last night as Barcelona offered him a new three-year deal.

However, the Cameroonian striker's agent is suspicious of the club's motives and claims Eto'o may yet join Manchester City, reports The Sun.

Eto'o has one year left on his current 110,000-pound-a-week deal and Barca say they want to extend that by two years - keeping him on the same wage.

But with City ready to pay 250,000-pounds-a-week, Eto'o, 28, will not stay unless he gets a big pay hike.

Agent Josep Maria Mesalles is not sure whether Barca want to keep Eto'o or are just trying to stop him leaving on a free next term.

"If we find out for sure that they don't want him, then we will do our best to find him another club and Manchester City would be a good option," he said. (ANI)
