The removal men have been busy in the Football Transfer Tavern taking down the 72-inch plasma TV that was beaming all the latest transfer news out to all our punters during the summer long transfer window.
One of the highest profile of arrivals in the Premier League was Samuel Eto’o who signed for Chelsea in a deal worth in the region of £5 million in what we all regard as a relative bargain, well that and our Saturday special of buy one spirit, while getting another on the house!
Eto’o joined up with the former manager Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge after being made available for sale by Russian Premier League outfit Anzhi Makhachkala as they looked to get rid of his extravagant wages following the billionaire owners’ decision to withdraw his funds.
The Blues took advantage of this fire sale in Russia to bring both Eto’o and Willian to SW6 in transfers that were both well received in the tavern (execpt Tottenham fans that is!)
However today’s viral clearly represents a different story with Eto’o having previously made very clear that he would have never signed for Chelsea in the past!
We’re guessing that either the Cameroonian has become bored with selling groundnuts or the chance to join up with the Special One again was too good a chance to miss, even if it was at a ‘pathetic’ club!
Will Eto’o prove to be an astute piece of business by Jose Mourinho? Let us know your thoughts below.
