Samuel Eto'o signs


Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Samuel Eto’o on a one-year deal.

Jose Mourinho hinted that Chelsea had given up on their pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney after two rejected bids and has now turned to ‘Plan B’.

Mourinho and the Cameroon striker are to be reunited after working together at Inter Milan, with Chelsea and Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala having agreed a deal.

The 32-year-old leaves Anzhi almost exactly two years after arriving in Russia in a move that shocked the footballing world, with the Dagestan-based club reportedly making Eto’o the best-paid player in the game.

He joins a number of other high-profile departures, including new Chelsea team-mate Willian, from Anzhi after owner Suleiman Kerimov decided to dramatically cut the club’s budget.

The Cameroon forward had two goals in six games in the fledgling Russian Premier League season.

Eto’o has appeared at three FIFA World Cup™ tournaments, in 1998, 2002 and 2010 – scoring three times.

    Welcome guy, wishing you the best. Rooney is a coward, I expect him to tell Moyes point blank that he want to move since it was once alleged that he told Fergie sometimes ago.

    @Akees:Don’t blame Rooney.He wants to leave but sometimes these things happen.He has played over 8seasons there and it is not easy to work away when the fans want you to stay.I promise you,Moyes will still give him shit and I tell you,he will leave next season(if not january transfer window)for Chelsea;He will play second fiddle to RVP,I am certain.Mou is just bidding his time,next time rooney cries,he will be more aggressive as United’s resolve will be broken.Rooney won’t be foolish not to leave them by then.

    Eto’o fils,you are Welcome to stamford bridge,home of your new Club,the Blues.Where the sky is always blue no matter the weather!!lol.Please tear opposition nets with goals.Show them who you are!!A FIGHTER!!!!.
