Chatter is abuzz here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the Champions League semi-final draw, but Chelsea fans may be more interested in the claim from Metro.
The publication seem to think that Samuel Eto’o is in talks with Turkish giants Besiktas over his summer exit from the Blues, and that is not something we can say we are particularly sad about.
Of course, as one of our punters points out, Chelsea have not exactly been enamoured with their forwards all season, and despite Eto’o grabbing a few goals in vital games, he has been a bit of a flop overall if we are honest.
Jose Mourinho is determined to rid the club of the deadwood in the summer, and three we can immediately think of for the exit are of course Demba Ba, Fernando Torres and the aforementioned Eto’o.
Eto’o is drawing interest from Turkish side Besiktas, who of course tried and failed to get Ba in the winter.
One of our punters suggests that Chelsea could offer a three-for-two offer and see if the Turkish side wanted to take all three flops off Chelsea’s hands this summer!
Is it next stop Istanbul for Chelsea’s Samuel Eto’o? Would any of you Blues fans like to see him stay in SW6? Let us know your thoughts below.
