Eto'o Soon To Be A Blue

Samuel Eto’o is reportedly close to signing a deal with Chelsea.

The Cameroon international striker will follow his old club-mate Willian to Stamford Bridge from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.

The Blues had kept their bid for Eto’o on ice, but moved categorically for the 32-year-old when Manchester United striker, Wayne Rooney, refused to take Jose Mourinho’s advice to agitate for a move away from Old Trafford.

Eto’o is expected to put pen to paper on a one-year deal with Chelsea before the end of the weekend.

A move to the English Premier League has been a long time coming for the former Barcelona and Inter Milan superstar.

In the past he has been linked to Liverpool, Manchester United and even Tottenham Hotspur, but he will now be charged with tormenting their defences under the management of his old San Siro boss, Jose Mourinho.

Unfortunately for fans of the English top-flight, Eto’o is probably arriving in the league a few seasons too late.

But he undeniably retains the class and striker’s instinct that have made him arguably Africa’s greatest goal machine.

And it will be interesting to see if he can win a place in Chelsea’s starting line-up ahead of the club’s current strikers, Demba Ba, Romelu Lukaku and Fernando Torres.
