Chelsea close to announce Eto'o signing as Cameroonian arrives in London!

orAccording to Daily Mail, Chelsea will sign Samuel Eto’o on a stunning £7million one-year deal on Thursday after admitting defeat in their pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Eto’o, the 32-year-old Cameroon forward, is taking a huge pay cut from the £17m a year that made him the world’s best paid footballer at Anzhi Makhachkala and will sign on a free transfer.

However, Anzhi are understood to have sweetened the deal by giving Eto’o a multimillion pound lump sum to get him off their wage bill.

Jose Mourinho has almost admitted defeat in the Blues’ pursuit to sign English forward Wayne Rooney and as he said Chelsea will close in on their 2nd option if Rooney decides to stay.

Eto’o arrived at London’s St Pancras station on Wednesday night and is due to have a medical at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground before finalizing terms after his advisers held talks on Wednesday.article-2404952-1B824C84000005DC-722_964x351

Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho, a confirmed Eto’o admirer, turned to his Plan B after United steadfastly refused to sell Rooney.

This deal might signal the imminent departure of Demba Ba who is a rumored target for AS Roma. Another player to depart Stamford Bridge on-loan might be Nigerian Victor Moses as Liverpool and some other premier league clubs are looking for a season long loan for the winger.

This will be a good news to Jose and all Chelsea fans as Eto’o even thought in his early 30s at 32 will prove to be an important asset to our striking department as he can operate in a lot of positions up front. And the relationship he maintains with the Special One will mean that Eto’o might get into grove early on without needing a time to settle in his new environment.

As we await the announcement of this anticipated deal for the 3 times Champions League winner. Please let us know what you think of this move for Eto’o! KTBFFH!

  4. Oscar emeka says

    Mourinho is a clever coach 2 sign Eto’o is stil a gud player nd even Eto’o reached 40yrs is stil wil perform

    1. Jeff says

      why talk like a fool he is 8yrs off 40, how can you possibly tell how good he would be then

  5. snowhite obi says

    This Eto’s move is useless. I don’t think Jose knows what he is doing and I think Jose actually needs help.
    How can he sign a player who’s 32? Besides,is Eto better than Torres or Lukaku,even Ba?
    We lost out on Rooney,but we have Willian,why not just sell Ba and let Moses stay,cos Moses have a lot to offer and he’s very young. This is the same mistake we made for Sturridge.
    Sturridge is one of the best striker in PL,young and skillful. Yet,we sold him to get Ba who is 29.

    what future holds for the pichichi

    Id rather have got Drogba back personally. But if its on the cheap I don’t mind this deal. Still think we need a quality striker as well Suarez and Lewandowski the only ones left (with the latter not likely ) !

    1. Jeff says

      Eto is faster and younger hence the choice

  8. fidel says

    @snowhite obi:I do not think you understand what you are saying:do u really watch football?how many goals did willian score combined in shakter doneskt and Anzhi combined?Willian is not a 9,he is AM who opnly works better as an attacking midfielder behind the strikers.Since joining Chelsea(even b4 then,hence liverpool allowed their striker go for a rip-off or else how do u explain them letting their top striker go?).Ba should go,Torres to stay(to fight),Lukaku(to learn from eto’o how to control and finish from Eto’o,like Messi did from ronaldinho),jackson Martinez to bring brut force to our striking,de Rossi to bring stability to our DM area,Mangala to bring youth,rigidity and experience to our defence.Simple,we win Epl and next season,EPL and UCL and FA cup.

  9. ur dick says

    @Fidel you are a big joke, i hope jose knows what he is doing because i will never forgive him if anything goes wrong. we dont need what happened to RM to repeat it self, why not get DD the Legend other than Eto’o and i sincerely do not understand why we signed Andre when we know we will still buy Willian and what is mata’s faith and that of Moses?

  10. fidel says

    Asamoah gyan for what!!?seriously?to do what for a great club like Chelsea?broda pleeeaassee!.

  11. Akees says

    Good move! Buy Suarez and sell Torres now before the trouble of not getting enough games start. So, Suarez, Eto’o, Lukaku and Ba, we are good to go.

  12. fidel says

    @Akees:yeah but I would rather prefer Eto’o,Suarez,lukaku and Jackson Martinez.That would be devastating.Torres can be exchanged with liverpool plus £5million for Suarez.jackson for 25mil,eto’o for £7mil.think this makes sense.though I would prefer Torres to fight this season,I like suarez very much,he gives 110% to any team he plays for.Jose handles such players well.

    I’m sick and tired of this Striker issue….. I pray it ends sooner than later

  14. SunnyLAMPSY says

    I’m sick and tired of this Striker issue….. I pray it ends sooner than later. We need at least 25epl goals from that position if we really want to win the league.

  15. Jeff says

    hold it fans, fidel made a good point on Suarez being a passionate footballer but we dnt want a controversial player like him on our team when we building the brand name Chelsea…Lukaku can learn from Eto and Torres dnt even mention Martinez

  16. Oguntola Niyi says

  23. Reagan says

    …and Chelsea gets him at last! Welcome to Jose den again.

  24. dabotrabo says

    the fact that Etoo agreed on pay cut,shows his passion for playing in top flight football…am sure he will silence his runs in my blood

    1. kingsley says

      I can’t think of any other striker in EPL that is as experienced and exposed as Etoo! He is a good buy! With our midfield loaded with Hazard, Willian, Schurrle(speed machines) Oscar, De Bryne, Mata etc. I can only imagine d devastating effect on opponents…

  25. wambua says

    i stil blv in Tores Elnino.

  26. kevin says

    Eto’o welcome to chelsea

  27. Vaakmeisster says

    Fans don’t see the big picture here. Eto is a proven finisher. Forget about his age (isn’t RVP 31?) he is a confident striker and a hard worker. For me he is a better version of Rooney who won’t destabilise the future of our young strikers as he will be sold of next season anyway. Oh he can also play left and right midfield too, in case y’all don’t know

  28. olupako olatunji says

    Up chelsea!!! 2 me Eto,o is a great sing 4 chelsea fc. Chelsea 4 life

  29. Kpatretta says
