It seems like another former Chelsea player fancies a switch to Serie A according to the Daily Mail and punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are not sorry to see Samuel Eto’o leave.
The Cameroonian forward did not exactly win the hearts of Chelsea fans during his spell at Stamford Bridge last season.
After failing to score an away goal during the entire 2013/14 campaign, we were not surprised to see Jose Mourinho show the former Barcelona and Inter Milan forward the door.
Now it seems that despite, according to him, having offers from many other clubs in six different countries around the world, Eto’o will return to Serie A and play for Roma where another released Chelsea player, Ashley Cole, signed a contract yesterday.
Blues fans are relieved they won’t be seeing Eto’o fluff chances next season and as one of our regulars notes, the forward must have made a pretty penny with his wage packet and signing on fees in the last few seasons!
Chelsea and Jose Mourinho meanwhile are desperate to add to their firepower and in addition to Diego Costa are looking to bring in at least one more quality forward this summer. We just hope this time they won’t have a free bus pass!
Chelsea fans. Eto’o was your first/second choice striker last season. With Diego Costa to be first choice, and Fernando Torres to be second choice, who else do you want in the transfer market? Let us know your thoughts below.
